Operation Turkey Drop - 1936
During the Spanish Civil War, troops were in need of supplies. Some supplies were dropped with parachutes, but the lack of sufficient parachutes meant the more fragile, medical supplies could not be dropped in this manner. The decision was made to drop the more fragile, medical supplies via turkey! Supplies were tied to live turkeys and then the turkeys were released from planes above the troops below. The drastic flapping of their wings upon decent meant that the medical goods experience a cushioned landing. Furthermore, it provided the troops some extremely fresh poultry!
