Humvee dropped from US plane lands in back garden - seven miles from target
07:28, UK, Thursday 25 October 2018

A Humvee military vehicle was pushed out of an equipment transporter plane and landed in a residential area - seven miles away from the target.

The three-tonne vehicle came down in an area frequently used by children to play, according to neighbours in Johnsonville, North Carolina.

It landed in the back garden of a property and between two houses, but no one was injured.

Witnesses reported hearing a "boom" as the Humvee landed, before the parachutes designed to slow its fall came down around it.

The vehicle had been dropped by a C-17 cargo plane as part of an exercise by soldiers from the Airborne and Special Operations Test Directorate.

The aircraft was based at Joint Air Force Base Charleston and the drop zone was supposed to be in Fort Bragg.

A Fort Bragg spokesman blamed an early release at 1,500ft and said the incident was under investigation.

"A load of some kind was released early and we're looking into how it happened," said Michael Novogradac, a spokesman for the US army's Operational Test Command.

Fort Bragg spokesperson Tom McCollum said: "Everything went as planned except for the early release."

lol, that's kinda funny but definitely glad no one was hurt.
If you understand how that system works, I would be interested in HOW it happened, I have loaded C-17's and there would have to be more to the story than they are releasing at this time.

You mean along the lines of major mess-up? An intentional move?
