Riggers ensure airdrops run smoothly

U.S. Army Sgt. Adrian Parks, a parachute rigger with the 824th Quartermaster Company Detachment 2, organizes the control lines at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, May 31, 2017. Parks organized the control lines for a joint precision airdrop system in order to conduct a full inspection on the system, designed for aircraft to drop cargo from a safe altitude, allowing them to be out of range of many anti-aircraft weapons systems.
