Tech. Sgt. Chasity Castonguay, 374th Logistics Readiness Squadron rigger operations supervisor, shows over 100 parachutes ready to use for low-cost low altitude airdrops during Operation Christmas Drop at Andersen Air Force Base, Dec. 5, 2015. The T-10 and T-10R parachutes were donated by the U.S. Army; utilizing repurposed, expired personnel chutes for cargo airdrop is just one way LCLA airdrops are cost-efficient and easy to apply across the global airlift community. The 40,000 pounds of donated items are packed into bundles for C-130 aircrews from USAF, JASDF, and RAAF to perform LCLA airdrops on unsurveyed drop zones while providing critical supplies to 56 islands throughout the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas, Federated States of Micronesia and Republic of Palau.
