Paratroopers from the 407th Brigade Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, conducted sling load operations with UH-60 Black Hawks from the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, at Fort Bragg, Oct. 8.

While the paratroopers conducted sling load operations, cadets from Western Alamance High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps in Elon, North Carolina visited the 82nd CAB to learn about Army aviation and capabilities.

The cadets had a chance to see each type of aircraft in the CABís inventory and speak with some pilots and crew members, eat at the CABís dining facility, watch sling load operations and visit the 82nd Airborne Division museum.
