Humvees Plummet to the Ground in Parachute Drop Fiasco

GRAFENWOEHR, Germany -- A training mission gone awry resulted in the loss of three Army Humvees during a heavy equipment drop mission last week in Hohenfels.

A video circulating on social media shows the vehicles falling out of the back of passing C-130s during a routine training exercise for the U.S. Army's 173rd Airborne Brigade on April 11. Connected to parachutes, most of the Humvees simply float gently to the ground. But during a second C-130 pass, one of the Humvees disconnects from its chute and is sent hurtling to the ground.

A minute later, a second one breaks free from its chute. Then, a third.
