The 10th Battalion of the Parachute regiment taking
part in Operation Howling Wolf over Salisbury Plains in 1993.
The Paras jump from a C130 Hercules plane that
flies in at low level, hugging the terrain to avoid radar. It's
quite a rollercoaster ride! Whatever your views on the military
you have to admit it takes certain amount of nerve to jump from
a plane at an altitude where a parachute only just has time to open.
