Label to reverse reads: ‘Fort Campbell, Ky. - Here's how combat ready paratroopers of the 101st Airbourne Division look as they spill from the door of a troop carrier aircraft. It takes about three and a half seconds for their parachutes to open completely. After that the jumper may be in the air from 45 seconds to a minute and a half before he reaches the ground. This picture was taken during one of the 101st's airborne mobility exercises.'
