15th Airborne corps airdrops in Tibet with Y-9 via China Defense Blog

More pics here.

What do I see?  Looks more like promotional pics to me.  They're highlighting the Y-9 (which I know nothing about) and their paratroops.

What has me spinning is the oxygen masks.  It looks like they're doing a static line jump "Russian" style but higher than we would consider normal.  I wonder why that is?  Its the only explanation I could come up with for them using oxygen.  Oh and its a Hollywood jump too.  No weapons, no packs, just their main and reserve.
