July 29, 2010
The parachute recovery system and payload are extracted from the back of an Air Force C- 17 as part of NASA's drogue parachute test on April 14, 2010, at the U.S. Army Yuma Proving Grounds near Yuma, Ariz. This was the second in a series of three planned load limit tests designed to place the loads expected in flight on the parachute canopy.
