774th EAS conducts first combat airdrop in two-and-a-half years

Senior Airmen Tom Saunders, left, and Jacob Snider, 774th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron loadmasters, review a checklist while preparing for an airdrop at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, Aug. 24, 2017. An airdrop is one of many methods airlift Airmen use to deliver cargo. When planning on how to deliver cargo, the type of environment is a key factor in the decision. Weather, the danger present in the area and terrain are just a few of the factors used in deciding what method to use. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Benjamin Gonsier)
