Crazy Video: Paratroopers Static Line Jump From Boeing C-17 and C-130 Hercules
Army paratroopers jump from a C-17 Globemaster 3 aircraft during an airborne training exercise on Fort Bragg, N.C. The yellow cord, called a static line, deploys the paratroopers parachute automatically once they leave the plane.
For most of us, jumping out of a perfectly good airplane may seem like a ridiculous proposition, but for the soldiers assigned to the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne, it’s the only way to travel.
The 82nd Airborne specializes in parachute assault operations in denied areas — what does that really mean? That 82nd Paratroopers are always on call and able to respond to crisis events anywhere on the planet within 18 hours per the Defense Department’s requirement. During the recent protests in Baghdad, Iraq that saw the U.S. Embassy under attack, the 82nd Airborne were among the first to respond.
