Drogue Parachute Drop Test 4
July 29, 2010
All systems were go as engineers conducted last-minute checks in preparations for NASA's drogue parachute test on April 14, 2010, at the U. S. Army Yuma Proving Grounds near Yuma, Ariz. The jumbo dart used as part of test sits in back of an Air Force C-17. The 77,000-pound payload used in the test set a record for the heaviest single load ever extracted out of a C-17 during flight.
