A Bulgarian jumper holds onto his ripcord inside a U.S. Air Force C-130J Super Hercules aircraft before performing a static-line jump over Plovdiv, Bulgaria, July 14, 2018. When performing a static-line jump, the cord is pulled by an attached line from the plane upon jumping. During Thracian Summer 2018, U.S. and Bulgarian forces trained both static-line jumps and free falls. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Jimmie D. Pike)
