    Because at the moment before the supplies are dropped, they are traveling with the plane at 40 m/s. If we forget about the plane for a second and pretend you throw a ball off a building at 40 m/s, do you expect the ball to fall straight down, or to go out as it falls? |dw:1440364334585:dw|

    While gravity is acting downwards, the supplies start out with a horizontal velocity component causing them to want to continue moving sideways when they're dropped. Air resistance would slow it down, but you would still have to drop the supplies before the camp site, such that they can fall onto the camp site. |dw:1440364493413:dw|
