    Seeing that video reminds me of one of the many trips I took to Ft. Irwin. On one of them when I was stationed at Ft. Stewart, we flew to Ft. Irwin on a C130. As we approached the training area, the C130 made a sudden and steep descent and opened the back ramp. They then pushed the cargo out the back door and made an even more sudden and more steep ascent.

    Shoulda seen all the guys barfing into their helmets!
