Or not.

Maybe they caught it in the 50 minute flight to altitude in the DC-3. He took his rig off, re-attached the main and repacked everything.

Or,

His main will stay in the sleeve and he will simply deploy his reserve. Probably a round, but people knew how to spot back then, so he will PLF in the pea gravel.

On the way to get his gear, he will stop and get a twelve pack of bud, smoke a cigarette, and be bummed that he might miss the sunset load unless his friend loans him the "rat rig."

ETA: It is cool that Journey had a few skydiving photos in their albums! I think they had a five way round on the cover of one.
