The United States Air Force performs a needed service of airlifting troops and equipment all over the world at any time they are needed. The aircraft have become quite adept at making drops in any kind of environment as well as making sure that the equipment makes it safely to the ground and that the troops are able to reach their destination without a problem. Making this happen is due in large part to the Loadmaster Apprentice.
Proper Loading an Aircraft
It is not possible just to load everything onto an aircraft any old way. Everything has to be calculated in terms of weight along with everything else which will be loaded onto the aircraft. These exact measurements will allow you to load the aircraft without having to worry about overloading or loading the aircraft with a misbalanced load. This can cause the aircraft to fly poorly and to put everyone on board in danger.
Dropping a Tank from the Sky
Nothing is more fun than launching a tank into the air by nothing more than just your hands. Of course, it is fun to watch the tank be pulled from the aircraft and drop into the sky. When you work as a loadmaster apprentice in the US Air Force, this is a sight which will become normal to you, but will be no less exciting any time you do it.
