Video of huge trucks being dropped from military plane (followed by some drops that didn’t go quite so well)

// December 16th, 2013 // Military


This awesome video below begins with “some big heavy trucks being dropped from a military plane in the middle of the night, huge machines, being launched at incredible speed!” The soldiers in the video are part of the 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment (the first U.S. combat paratrooper unit) and the plane they are in is a C-17 Globemaster III operated by the US Air Force 517th Airlift Squadron.

After seeing how cool the first drop is, we finish the video with some clips of drops that were, eh, not so good. Although the incidents were surely expensive, you gotta admit they’re pretty humorous.

Check out the video below:
