308th Rescue Squadron pararescuemen perform a military freefall from the back of an HC-130P/N Combat King aircraft.
Special Tactics Overview
They free-fall out of aircraft. Use their ram-air parachute to land at a precise location - on land or at sea. They operate on airfields with motorcycles, travel cross-country on skis, or climb mountains. It's their job to be courageous. To do the impossible. To go where others won't. They do whatever it takes to complete the mission. These are the Special Tactics Airmen of the Air Force Special Operations Command.
