15th Airborne corps airdrops in Tibet with Y-9 ...pics via China Defense Blog
More pics here.
What do I see? Looks more like promotional pics to me. They're highlighting the Y-9 (which I know nothing about) and their paratroops.
What has me spinning is the oxygen masks. It looks like they're doing a static line jump "Russian" style but higher than we would consider normal. I wonder why that is? Its the only explanation I could come up with for them using oxygen. Oh and its a Hollywood jump too. No weapons, no packs, just their main and reserve.
