Re: [mik] Double fatality, 8 January 2013, Dosaaf Komi, Russia

The following is based strictly on a translation of the news report video:
Quote:
Their fall lasted 30 seconds, falling at 50 meters per second. Eyewitnesses reported initiation of opening at approximately 70 meters. Main should be opened by at least 300 meters. They were conducting "exercise 31", which is a delayed jump. Training manual requires a delay of no more than 10 seconds when jumping from 1200m, and no more than 15 seconds when jumping from 1500m. These guys jumped from 1400m and had a 23 second delay. Cypres2 was not turned on.
