One quick question before I leave for work....A C-130 did 6-10 circuits at our municipal airport today with the ramp open, and I witnessed it dropping at least 1 object. It did not appear to be a parachutist or streamer. Then the a/c landed, back tracked on the runway, opened the ramp, and shut down. About 5 minutes later, the airport truck backed up and a number of parcels were tossed into the Lockheed. The Herc then departed. Just wondered what the C-130 was dropping. (wind was 15+ knots at about 30 degrees off centerline)
Thanks to anyone who can shed some light.
