Charleston C-17 humanitarian cargo mission over Iraq

This is a still from a U.S. Central Command video of the U.S. military airdrop of food and water on Aug. 7 for thousands of Iraqi citizens threatened by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant near Sinjar, Iraq. This mission was conducted from multiple airbases within the CENTCOM area of responsibility and included one Charleston C-17 and two C-130 aircraft that together dropped a total of 72 bundles of supplies. The C-17 dropped 40 "Container Delivery System" bundles of fresh drinking water and was complemented by a C-130 loaded with an additional 16 bundles totaling 5,300 gallons of fresh drinking water. In addition, one C-130 aircraft dropped 16 bundles totaling 8,000 meals ready to eat. The aircraft were over the drop area for less than fifteen minutes flying at a low altitude.
