Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division PatchKandahar Airfield, Afghanistan – Task Force Shadow’s CH-47 Chinooks from B Company executed their first low cost, low altitude aerial delivery resupply to troops at a combat outpost in Afghanistan July 26th.

A low cost, low altitude airdrop is the delivery of supplies rigged in bundles with single-use, recycled parachutes dropped from an aircraft at a low altitude.

This first-time airdrop was to certify the Pathfinders on the ground and the aircrews were capable of conducting these procedures.

“It was a huge success because not only were we able to certify and verify the ground portion of it, but we did the same with the aircrew by verifying their stabilization and qualifications,” said Chief Warrant Officer 4 John Nikolao, TF Shadow standardization instructor pilot.

The jumpmaster waits for the Chinook pilots to give the order to “execute” the airdrop before pushing the bundle out the back of the aircraft. The Chinooks are equipped with “Helicopter Internal Cargo Handling Systems”, rollers, which allows for less force when dropping a bundle weighing over 200 pounds.

Oak Grove “Pilot” offers price buster gas at $3.59 — while it lasts

 

For those trying to beat the high price of gas, a trip just over the state line to Kentucky may be worth its weight in pennies. While a few stations in Clarksville have dropped below that $4+ benchmark, we still saw many stations in the range of  $4.15 a gallon.

In the course of Clarksville Online travels Saturday, we ended up at the Oak Grove Pilot Station off I-24, where a tangled maze of drivers jockeyed for positions at the pumping stations.

Why? $3.59 a gallon for regular unleaded (as of 4 p.m. Saturday). We joined the fray, easing into a spot and filling up. At 50 cents a gallon less than the city’s rate, and with less than half a tank registering on the gas gauge, it only made sense to fill up, to top off, since we were right there.

Clarksville Online has constantly kept our eyes on the painful price of gas, and Pilot Travel Center was definitely the pick of the day if you had to gas up.

The Travel Center is located at 8190 Pembroke-Oak Grove Road, Oak Grove, KY immediately off Interstate 1-95. By logging onto the Pilot website, you can confirm gas prices before you travel. (this price was still posted at 7 p.m.).

As I contemplate the price, I can’t help but be amazed at paying $3.59 a gallon; a year ago that price would have been shocking. Times change.
