This was hands-down the best assignment in our 28-year career because of YOU...the most talented workforce in the Air Force! Edwards AFB is a very special place...a historical aerospace wonder and the future of Airpower for our nation. You are all part of this amazing mission...providing war-winning combat capabilities--YOU keep America safe! Thank you for your AWESOME service and your support for me and my family.

Check out this important reminder from our friends at the #EdwardsAirForceBase Environmental Management office.
#OTD 9 Jul 1993 at #EdwardsAirForceBase - The first personnel parachute airdrops were made from a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. We dug deep into the archives to find this old footage that captured this historic event from on-board and outside the aircraft. The video includes the first person to jump, MSgt D. Gordon as well as his comments, followed by other jumps. Note the only audio is at 17-seconds where MSgt Gordon describes his jump. #C17 #parachute #military #aviation #avgeek #history
