Paracommander Mk.1 all black! Can't Post

Hi...

Just a quick heads up...there is a black PC on E-bay.

http://www.ebay.de/itm/270869852048?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Unfortunately I have no "funny money" left right now and I am too heavy for a 24ft one anyway...Mad Just bought a second SF-10A last month...

cheers
Uwe

Hey Beatnik.....

Can you post the pics you took of me under my all-black PC at Skydive Palatka? I can't get them small enough to post.

Edit to add: just checked my logbook - I used to own this canopy. Soild it about two years ago. This is the chute I referenced above...small world, huh?

Not yet. Been working on the loft and other things at the moment. It will probably be in the spring now maybe sooner. Will post pictures when it is jumped. I also have a Sierra that needs jumping and I need to see if anyone has photos of me jumping my Pioneer Hornet. Let me say that Hornet really stung!

I recall them as $325 new !!!

Which, with inflation up to today, would be who knows how much.

i dks,

When the ParaCommander came on the market in the Spring of '64 they were $225 for canopy, sleeve, and pilot chute.

The CrossBow was $224.50. Tongue

The black PC is very cool... but, my all time favorite is still the "Church Window". Cool

BTW, here's the English version -- http://www.ebay.com/itm/270869852048

Says "Southwest USA" -- I wonder if that means Eloy???
