Summary: 

Sudan November 2007

The 50-kilogram bags resemble snow fakes as they tumble more than 100 meters to the ground. But they are extremely dangerous and a crowd of onlookers is kept well back. Before being loaded on the plane, the bags are sown into three other outer bags to stop being split open on impact.
