1st 4 way VFS in competition video? Can't Post

 Saw a clip on a Freefly vid a while ago that showed some early (2004) 4 way VRW. Story that was told to me was that it was a belly 4 way team that wasn't going to win so they opted to do the dive during competition head up/down. (jumpers were rocking RW suits W BOOTIES, as I recall)

Anybody know where I can find this on the interwebs? Been looking a little bit, no dice on google or the search key here on dorkzone.

Did freefly in the nineties when I couldn't find someone to jump with, never thought of doing it with others, why the hell would you when points needed to be turned! Tongue Al Frisbee used to come up with very different 6-12 way jumps that were very inventive and not the norm for the times.

Try this link, and I quote:

"Most memorable jumps:
*Round 10, 2004 Advanced 4 way at the U.S. Nationals, where my throw together team Marae did the draw vertically, becoming the first vertical formation skydive seen in competition. "
