And if he gets the proper certification to fly with mid-air self unloading cargo (aka, paratroops) he can visit such scenic locales as Pope AAF, Elmendorf, the former Benning School for Wayward Boys, and whatever they call that former AFB in Alexandria, LA.

I've jumped from C-130s and C-141s. I much prefer the C-130s. The C-141s were wicked with the jet wash and they could never get slow enough to make for a reasonable exit.

For you flyboys who wonder why anyone would jump out of a perfectly good airplane, it's the only rational thing to do when it's being flown by a US Air Force pilot.

When I was on the Navigator track I used to threaten an SF buddy of mine that if he wasn't nice to me I'd drop him right in the middle of the correct DZ and he wouldn't know what to do.
