Merry Christmas Drop from Woleai
Five low-cost, low-altitude humanitarian-aid bundles are airdropped from a U.S. Air Force C-130J Super Hercules out of Yokota Air Base, Japan, during Operation Christmas Drop, Woleai, Federated States of Micronesia, Dec. 10, 2019. Every December, C-130 crews from the U.S. Air Force team up with the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force, Royal Australian Air Force, and Royal New Zealand Air Force for Operation Christmas Drop, a humanitarian aid and disaster relief training exercise designed to airdrop critical supplies to remote islands like Woleai throughout the FSM and the Republic of Palau.
