Drag it out

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Justin Yochum, 5th Expeditionary Maintenance Squadron aerospace repair and reclamation journeyman, unscrews a panel to replace a drag chute on a B-52H Stratofortress at RAF Fairford, United Kingdom, June 13, 2016. The drag chute system consists of mechanisms which are used to close the drag chute door and to deploy and jettison the drag chute. Mechanisms are in place to prevent jettisoning the chute before deployment and to automatically jettison the chute if the drag chute door opens inadvertently.
