Video: C17 Drops Humvee Out the Back of Plane

During the 2012 PACRIM Navy exercises, I got to do a lot of cool things.

It was interesting listening to the pilots as they landed the plane

One of the things I got to do was ride in a C17 Transport Carrier from Oahu to the Big Island where they actually let me sit in the cockpit for the landing in Kona.

Part of this exercise involved dropping simulated supplies from the back of the plane to a target on top of Mauna Kea at the Pohakuloa Training Area.
