Hello from an old timer
I found this site by accident, and I am glad I did because I am enjoying the various threads.
My first jump was at Lakehurst Naval Air Station in 1960. I made 60 jumps into that sand pit that was surrounded by trees. My 31st jump was out of one of those blimps, June 28, 1961. In those days we tried various modifications to the old type parachutes. Some worked well while some -- not so well.
I started 6 threads under the Skydiving History & Trivia section: 1960 Trials & ERRORS 1961 Blimp Jump 1961 Blimp Jumper's Names 1961 Water Jump into Atlantic Ocean 1961 Helicopter Jump Something fun for your kids at the DZ
