Ft. Benning holds airborne operation demonstration

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Fort Benning's 75th Ranger Regiment!

The unit is conducting a Mass Tactical Airborne Operation on Fort Benning. About 800 Rangers were a part of the demonstration on the Fryar Drop Zone on Monday

"We look forward to this event," said Major Tony Mayne with the 75th Ranger Regiment. "It is a time we get to let our hair down for a moment and enjoy some of the success of Rangers gone before us. You get to meet them, we get to hang out with them, it's a great experience."

Monday's airborne operation kicks off Ranger Rendezvous, a unit tradition designed to bring the entire Regiment together for a change of command.
