Firefighters in a remote location on the August Complex of fires in northern California were recently resupplied with four days of food via four GPS-guided steerable parachutes which reportedly descended through smoke. It was the first time four were in the air simultaneously and dropped from over 11,000 feet.
Firefighters reported that three landed within 100 feet of the target and one snagged in a tree and was recovered.
The video was posted on the Mendocino National Forest Facebook page.
