Post #1 of 12
These are pictures from a 1930 German article (which was linked on the dz.com German page.) Interestingly, the story uses the term "Taucher der Lüfte," which I guess can be loosely translated as "skydiver" -- the earliest use of this term I've found.
Interestingly, tod1 also appears in the book Nine Lives: the story of the parachutist John Tranum, opposite page 134. Most of the pictures have some sort of assignation as to where they came from, but that one does not.
Tranum was Danish and spent the last few years of his life in Europe.
