Awesome! Peek Inside the 67th Special Operations Group

The 67th Special Operations Group MC-130J
Ever wondered what some of those Special Operations units, that fly a boring aircraft like the C-130 (or one of its derivatives), do day in and day out? Well here's a video for you and it looks like it's anything but boring!

This video features the 67th Special Operations Group, which is based in the United Kingdom, at RAF Mildenhall. The 67th SOG conducts a wide variety of missions, including single or multi-ship low-level air refueling missions for special operations helicopters, infiltration, exfiltration, and resupply of special operations forces through both air drop and landing on unprepared or short runways.

The 67th SOG flies the MC-130J aircraft. Based on the venerable C-130, the MC-130J features several improvements, such as the capability to refuel aircraft in flight, enhanced cargo capabilities, and upgraded ECM suite for defense, and more. These aircraft are capable of a wide variety of missions, as you'll see in the video below!

This video touches on just about everything the 67th SOG can do! You've got rotary wing refueling, airdropping of vehicles and Special Forces, low level flying in the Mach Loop, landings on unprepared surfaces, and some low level flying over Paris. Enjoy!
