Catch a falling parcel on a parachute

#1
Challenge: Snag a falling parachute mid-air

Description: I would love to see FliteTest replicate the NASA feat of catching spacecraft on parachutes. It would be an amazing show of what can(or can't) be done with RC aircraft. It might also be challenging to design and may be worth a few VLOGs. Also, there is a chance of the plane/helicopter getting caught in the parachute and falling out of the sky.

HERE are the pictures of NASA doing it.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Use a plane with a hook(or some catching device) to snag a falling parachute(with some package) mid-air, and land it safely some distance away.
