During Women’s History Month in March, the United States Army and Air Force teamed up to celebrate the women of the U.S. military. This was achieved with an all-female flight and airdrop on March 17, 2021.
The all-woman C-17 Globemaster III aircrews were with the 315th and 437th Airlift Wings located at Joint Base Charleston in Charleston, S.C. Women parachutists from the 82nd Airborne based in North Carolina at Fort Bragg loaded the aircraft at Pope Army Airfield.
This video below shows the training mission with the women going through their prechecks aboard the C-17 and checking the parachutes and equipment of the jumpers. At the last moment before the drop began, the mission was canceled due to inclement weather.
