Parachute packers ensure a safe and sustained landing

U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Stuart Bastiaance, 355th Operations Support Squadron aircrew flight equipment apprentice, unrolls the canopy of a parachute at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., May 14, 2018. Four OSSs stationed here come together under one roof to pack and inspect parachutes and survival kits in support of their respective units. If a pilot needs to eject, the parachute ensures they land safely and the survival kit keeps them sustained until help arrives. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Frankie D. Moore)
