TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) - Airmen from the Georgia Air National Guard were performing airdrop training on Tuesday. They were jumping from a C-130 aircraft.
The training is critical because it helps airmen hone their para-rescue skills.
"If we're not trained...if we're not great at our jobs...then we can't complete it," Capt. Seth Adler said.
The mission of a para-rescueman is to recover downed and injured aircrew members.
This is the first time that the 165th conducted this training on Tybee Island.
