Keeping Airmen safe: 19th OSS AFE upgrades parachutes

Airmen from the 19th Operation Support Squadron Aircrew Flight Equipment shop hold the new BA-30 parachute (left), older BA-22 parachute (right) and at Little Rock Air Force Base, Arkansas, Nov. 23, 2020. The BA-30 is a “low-profile” construct, reducing the overall parachute pack size by 25 percent, and weight reduction of ten pounds. This makes the pack more comfortable for the wearer – which can reduce wearer fatigue during flight operations. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Isaiah Miller)
