Piss read above, I had 3 seconds what should I have done?? and that's with a ,4 on the lens so lets say more like 2 by the time my vision picked it up. I am all ears...
I am not saying I am right and you are wrong, this is how I interpreted the video. It takes 2 for a collision.
Just saying that it seems that none of you 2 are "white as snow". Could have been better both sides.
Oh, and it is Piis, not Piss Laugh

edited to add : P.S. thanks for posting the video, it shows very well what can happen with poorly planned approaches (by the other jumper) and how close it can get. As close as can be before contact I guess.

Oh quit whining like a boring risk averse old fart. It's a big blue sky out there, nothing bad is going to happen, skydiving is about freedom and you can't tell me how to fly my parachute. Tongue

There's never anything wrong with getting annoyed at someone for doing something unsafe. But if you don't want a recurrence, there are better and worse ways to talk to them about it.

OK. What's your point there? In my experience a load wth few people in the air (as long as there is more than 1) is often MORE risky since everyone thinks "I'm wide open." Congested airspace results in everyone being nervous and cautious, which results in more awareness.

So how did you miss seeing him?

If you don't want advice, and you don't want to learn, don't post here. If you do want advice, all the advice may not be exactly what you want to hear. Feel free to ignore any advice that conflicts with what you wanted to hear.

Landing a parachute is a team sport!

It certainly is. Didn't see any team players in that video.
That landing area is a helicopter magnet.
