Airmen Jump Into Action

Ready, set, jump!

Air Force special tactics airmen took to the skies recently to conduct a jump over Hurlburt Field, Florida. The jump took place during Emerald Warrior, an exercise hosted by Air Force Special Operations Command.

Marines assisted in the training event. They loaded cargo and operated a Marine Corps KC-130J Hercules for the jump.
