A stick of US Army paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division's 1st Brigade Combat Team jump from a C-130 Hercules during an airborne training operation at Fort Bragg, North Carolina on 29 January 2013. The paratroopers used the Army's newest parachute system, the T-11, which is designed to carry a heavier load, prevent oscillations, and reduce injuries to paratroopers upon landing. The C-130 crew was from the 440th Airlift Wing, the Air Force Reserve Command unit at Pope Field on Fort Bragg.
