Parachute check

Tech. Sgt. Christopher Heaney, 911th Operations Support Squadron aircrew flight equipment technician, inspects the air channel of the C-9 canopy of a BA22 parachute, here, July 19, 2012. The air channel is vital to the opening of the parachute, without air flow the parachute will not open properly thereby causing personnel to fall rapidly to the ground. Parachutes are inspected every 180 days to ensure mission readiness. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Joshua J. Seybert/Released)
