Release authority
A parachuted bundle soars out of the back of a C-145 Skytruck during an airdrop mission over the Eglin Air Force Base range. New and prior-qualified loadmasters release sandbags and 300-pound boxes from the 919th Special Operations Wing aircraft to as part of their initial airdrop or proficiency training. The 919th Special Operations Logistics Readiness Squadron’s Airmen are responsible for packing, securing and recovering the equipment and parachutes. (U.S. Air Force photo/Sam King)
