There is some fascinating footage there. The downloads took forever though. Recommended for anyone wanting an education about early jumping. Thanks for the link!
elniabatorsagoromet.mpg Want to see how it was done in the old days.? It has some freefall footage, and they use free sleeves on the canopies, with blank gore modifications. A woman making a jump is the focus, but others jump too. I am very curious when it was filmed. And where.
ejeokt.mpg will give you packing lessons for round parachutes. Then some jumps from a big biplane (AN-2?) using the free sleeve rounds (that actually look square when viewed from below) they spent 20 minutes of the film packing. Women in this too. Even had several stand-up landings. Later some jumps included a two-way RW jump, and round canopies with sleeves and retainer lines.
RS4esB8.mpg is a brief clip of a two-out landing with two round canopies.
ejenbgodolla.mpg has some accuracy competition with squares, I'm guessing circa mid-1970's. One canopy has a slider.
Aug20.mpg has several jumps into the river in Budapest. Including some CRW, smoke, and a mass jump.
