Whoops! Looks like someone forgot to properly secure the parachutes to these Humvees before rolling them out of the cargo doors of these C130s… For at least 3 Humvees in this massive mishap, the picturesque green fields of Hohenfelds, Germany were the end of the line.

Fortunately for us, there was someone there to video the mishap for our viewing pleasure! For some strange reason, the GIs […]
