This would be pretty cool to watch from perimeter, Not jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, But I would LOVED to be on a plane doing this: "In preparation for the airborne operation, the planes dove from 28,000 feet to 1,500 feet in a few short minutes by shifting engines into reverse as part of a "tactical descent."
Getting back to Bosnia after R&R, I was in a C130. About 10 minutes before landing in Tuzla, we did a rapid decent from cruising altitude to approx 1000'. If you didn't know before hand, you were crapping in your shorts. lol
