Just to make sure I understand this right -- the canopy that finally opens was his *main* and the white ball of shit was the reserve....right? I'm guessing the reserve didn't have much air to open once he pushed it out of his main lines -- so when he landed, he was trailing a ball of partially-inflated reserve?

If I understand the skyhook correctly, it wouldn't have affected this situation at all. Basically the risers-side of the skyhook obviously wouldn't have done anything (the main risers still attached) and so the reserve PC would have disconnected the hook and it would have worked just like a non-skyhook rig.

Already posted and under discussion, here:

Perhaps this conversation should occur there, rather than start a new thread on the same thing.
