code MJ-511 and 155410/MJ-516 of VMO (Marine Observation sqn.)-4 "Rebels" (locally-based), paratrooper demonstration. This capability was little-associated with the OV-10 (and very rarely demonstrated), which was better-known as an observation and foward air control aircraft. The objects protruding below the Broncos' aft fuselages are the legs of the first paratroopers to be dropped in the sequence! For this maneuver, the aft fuselage tailcone is removed and left open for the paratroopers.
