Re: [popsjumper] Flying a Biplane or side by side

One of the reasons I have specific interest in this topic is because of a guy at our DZ was hurt last year with a two out. His reserve came out when he was low. His main went out in front and down, pulling him out of control. He tried to "fly it back" up and into a more stable configuration. But he ended up hitting hard on concrete and had spinal injuries.

He never had a stable two out, so it is a bit different. But I would not want a stable situation to become unstable because of something I did. So, I am hunting for the best understanding I can get.

The test report was a help, for sure.
