Canopy Construction Videos? Can't Post

Hey gang,

I've just ordered a new canopy, and since I've got lots of time on my hands and I'm not currently jumping, I was curious; Are there any videos floating around of the actual construction process of a canopy? I'm too far away to take a factory tour :(

I'm not looking for specific brand details or anything like that. But I think if it would help me learn more about my equipment, that can only be good. I thought maybe the Discovery Channel or PD website might have something, but nothing I could find.

Cheers,

Skydude.

Discovery Channel's Science Channel had a show called "How it's Made" that did a segment on canopy construction.

I found the show, but I can't find the segment, at least not without digging deeper than I want to at the moment.

The show itself is really cool, even if you don't find the parachute part.

I just saw it on Netflix, not sure what episode though.

PD had some stuff on their site, not sure if it made it to UTube, you may want to completly search PD's Facebook / Blog sites they had some stuff on inspections which showed them sewing in the background.

Not much to go on here but there is some hardcore thread-in-fabric action going on.

Yeah, that's it! Video of tv playing kind of sucks, but that's it.

Thanks. (Clicky fixed)

Found this one, same segment, different narrator, but it's the acutal video, not bootlegged video of it playing on a tv.
