774th EAS conducts first combat airdrop in two-and-a-half years
The 774th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron conducted their first combat airdrop in nearly two-and-a-half years, resulting in the successful delivery of 11,000 pounds of equipment to coalition forces. 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.
