Ghostplane pics? Can't Post

Does anyone have some pics (or links) of ghostplanes?
The link in the "a couple of questions about ghostplanes" thread that showed the nice shots from Denmark isnt working anymore...

Do not know much English. If understood correct, you are interested in separation from the airplane?

Two pics from 1989 - a ghostplane on my 1500th jump. Still the Cruislite days.
Very bumpy and unstable to fly and land.

Are the risers of the ghost canopy connected to your harness?? Doesnt look like you are standing "in" the risers, are you??

Doing something that hindsight and experience tells me was very stupid.
I put my legs through the risers all the way so that the V of the risers was at my crotch.
Once I was there, the other gouy cutaway.
Obviously, had the canopies decided to downplane, this arrangment would have been pretty much impossible to get out of...
