There were 15 jumps in the 45-50+ range shooting for 2 points. We built the first point consistently, but never got the second.
Good time though, great friends.

Very large sequential skydives continue to be elusive.

Maybe an organizer will consult a physicist one day.

The Phoenix formation was completed. In true World Team style, it was completeed on the last possible jump of the event. Weather kept us to only two jumps on two of the days, but good days on the other two.

There are aerodynamic principles that, in my humble opinion, need to be considered in engineering a large sequential skydive. You can easily make it hard or even impossible if you don't engineer it correctly. What can be handled by skill of the jumpers on a 40-way may be beyond the limits on a poorly engineered 150 way.
