I remember watching that stuff on ESPN when it first aired. I think that was the closest skydiving ever got to 'commercial' success.
It's amazing how much better we all got at freeflying, even from comp to comp in those days. If you compare it to the VFS stuff that's out there today, you guys all look like amatuers out there, but that's the problem with trying to market skydiving to the general public, they don't recognize the level of difficulty in any of what we do, nor the slight differences from formation to formation or from move to move.
