HALO Freefall Jumping • With the Lithuanian Special Forces • (Master)
What does it feel like to jump into thin air, four kilometres above the earth? Find out as a video producer who works for NATO conducts a freefall jump alongside Lithuanian Special Forces operators. High-altitude, low-opening (HALO) freefall jumps are a useful but risky method of infiltrating Special Operations Forces into dangerous territory. By plunging from altitudes as high as 10 kilometres and opening their parachutes close to the ground, operators are able to hit small drop zones without being detected. Footage includes shots of Lithuanian Special Forces conducting HALO training, and US Special Forces operators conducting HALO jumps on a separate training in Latvia.
