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 May 14, 2018, at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Four OSS members 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.
