Pacific Airlift Rally air-mobility demonstration

A C-17 Globemaster III from Alaska Air National Guard’s 249th Airlift Squadron drops a Humvee fitted with a parachute system out the back of the aircraft over Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Aug. 27, 2015, during Pacific Airlift Rally. PAR is a biennial, military aircraft symposium sponsored by Pacific Air Forces for nations in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. This year’s PAR was co-hosted by Alaska ANG’s 176th Wing. The exercise uses a humanitarian assistance/disaster relief scenario to provide participating nations the opportunity to cooperate, interact and advance airlift topics specific to the region.
