NSN calls this a meteorological parachute, but it looks like a crude wind sock
made from a tyveck paper material and opens up to a cone shape
belonged to a USAF loadmaster, maybe from an ALCE or TALCE unit
I am thinking a windsock for short term use in field condition operations?
is about 3 feet long, attaching strings are light weight
cage is wicker type wood tied together
package of 12 made in 1985
