82nd Airborne Paratroopers Jump from a C-130 | Video

Go Pro video from Sgt. William Reinier shows 82nd Airborne paratroopers jumping from a C-130 under the square canopies of their T-11 chutes. The T-11s were introduced five years ago, and offer a slower descent and more load-carrying capability than the 50-year-old round-canopied T-10 parachutes. On the other hand, that big, pillowy canopy opens noticeably more slowly than the T-10.
