Are those cardboard boxes he lands on?

I recall reading that the Russians dropped troops out of a transport into deep snow. The plane was flying low and slow but still pretty amazing.

Oh, I forgot, they did not have a parachute.

Some kind of foam filled boxes.

He was in fact wearing a parachute...just in case.

As I recall the Finns wandered out and shot down the holes they made in the drifts.
