Abstract: The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is arguably one of the most versatile fixed-wing transport aircraft available in any modern air force's arsenal. Besides transporting personnel, the Hercules may also take up goods and supplies for resupplement missions during peace and war times. In any case, mid-air ejection of goods and cargo via the tailgate always entails high risk for the C-130H and securing the airdropped goods’ integrity is of topmost priority. Upsweep forces and recirculation zones pose as hazardous environmental factors as they may cause extraction parachutes and goods to be blown off track or become damaged in the extraction process.
