Joint Base Charleston is home to a slew of C-17 Globemaster III long-haul cargo jets. These big guys are designed for carrying payloads and soldiers halfway around the planet into and around remote war zones.

A video shared this week on Facebook by the 315th Airlift Wing stationed at Joint Base Charleston gives a 360-degree perspective of what it's like dive out of the rear bay of a massive C-17 jets like the ones you see on the runway at CHS.

The video is originally from 2016 and filmed over Cape Canaveral, giving you a pretty neat look at the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
