Joint Airborne Training
A jumpmaster looks on as a member of the El Salvadoran military jumps from the ramp of a CH-47 Chinook helicopter during a joint airborne operations training exercise conducted by U.S. Special Forces and El Salvadoran servicemembers over Lake Ilopango, El Salvador, Jan. 21, 2014. U.S. Special Forces from the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) conducted the training exercise alongside members of the El Salvadoran military. The joint-training, overwater static jump allowed members from both nations to maintain currency while strengthening the relationship between the U.S. and El Salvadoran forces. Joint Task Force-Bravo’s 1-228th Aviation Regiment provided aerial support for the exercise, flying each chalk of jumpers from the Ilopango International Airport to the drop zone over Lake Ilopango.
