The boys that hump rucksacks assigned to the 101st (dopes on a rope), in Kentucky, I am 100% certain would like to cruise around in one of these. From my Paratrooper prospective, I would close my eyes and jump out of it.
Can I get a hell ya

TLAR, I never made any night jumps unless the sun was down. I heard some people say that all their jumps were night jumps. Were you one of those?

It is interesting how many pilots jump out of airplanes.

Now you know grunts always have there eyes open lol.
In the 82nd museum I found a great photo, a captain leading his men down to the ground. he was standing in the door both hands on the fuselage ready to jump both eyes closed tightly lol.
No photo credit, but located on ft Bragg at the time was the 5th and 7th SFG, DF headquarters, and of course the Golden Knights.
In order to get that photo you would have to have been free falling pretty close to that C130’s wing tip
