Gesing Mose drop zone


The parachutes open and slowly descend onto the drop zone where the reception team is waiting.

Intro

The team was at the drop zone but did not see a plane. In the pilot’s report, it states that there was only a single light at the drop zone and this was the reason why no airdrop had been made. The plane was supposedly at the wrong location.
