An Operation Christmas Drop bundle filled with critical supplies and donated goods descends to the ground Dec. 8, 2015 above the coastal waters of the remote Micronesian island of Asor. For the first time Australian and Japanese aircrews joined U.S. Airmen to execute the humanitarian aid/disaster relief training event where C-130 Hercules aircrews performed low-cost, low-altitude airdrops on unsurveyed drop zones while providing critical supplies to 56 islands.
