Video of the Week! The PARAS have landed - in Kenya

From British Forces News:

Published on Dec 4, 2013
3 PARA has parachuted into Kenya for the first time in more than ten years.

The soldiers jumped from an operational height of 800 feet - giving them just 20 seconds in the air.

Parachuting with heavy loads from such low heights carries risks, and 10 in every 100 paratroopers are expected to be injured on landing.

Medics were on hand and treated two men who were airlifted to hospital but were not seriously hurt...

Seems I can't embed this one, so go over HERE to watch it.
