(U.S. Army photo by Paolo Bovo)

U.S. Army, British and Italian paratroopers descend after jumping from an Air Force C-130 Hercules aircraft during airborne operations in Pordenone, Italy on December  3, 2019. On the right side of the photo, you can see the C-130 just above the ridge line.

The Hercules is from the U.S. Air Force 86th Airlift Wing. The U.S. paratroops are from the 173rd Airborne Brigade, the U.S. Army Contingency Response Force in Europe, capable of projecting ready forces anywhere in the U.S. European, Africa or Central Commands areas of responsibility.
