Paratroopers descend onto the Iron Mike Drop Zone outside St. Mère Eglise, France, on 8 June 2014 during the seventieth anniversary commemoration of the 1944 D-Day invasion by US and Allied forces. More than 700 static-line parachutists jumped into the drop zone from fourteen different aircraft from several nations. These paratroopers jumped from a C-130J Super Hercules assigned to the 37th Airlift Squadron at Ramstein AB, Germany.
