Paratroopers descend to Malamute Drop Zone on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, after performing an exit technique called the "mass exit", with aircraft in a trail formation. While relatively close together on the descent, jumpers are trained to maintain a minimum safe distance in the air of 25 feet while jumping with a T-10 Delta parachute.
