Different styles, but only one way down

A U.S. paratrooper jumps from a C-130E aircraft with arms tightly in front of his body and feet together and forward during a static-line jump with Bulgarian paratroopers during Operation Thracian Spring 2009. In its third year, the exercise gives the U.S. and Bulgarian military opportunity to interact and train together. U.S. and Bulgarian paratroopers performed daytime and nighttime jumps during the exercise, getting a chance to use each other’s aircraft and share techniques. Photo and story: Jennifer H. Svan / S&S
