About 5 of the shroud lines are missing. If you will note, each of the. Shroud lines is numbered at the point where it joins the body of the chute. You can see the nomenclature and manufacture markings clearly. This parachute comes packed in an original weatherproof canister which. Is about 2 feet high. The can is well marked.
It is the container that they. Stuffed these chutes into after they had been deployed. To be transported to the rigging hut in these cans so that they could be.
