Looking for an Ash Dive image from over a decade ago Can't Post

It seems like a gazillion years since alt.rec.skydiving, and I remember being on it not long after I started jumping when I saw an unforgettable image of an ash dive. I can't remember the jumper's name, but I do remember his last name started with a "C". The jumpers in the ash dive made a C formation, and the vidiographer captured the image of a "ghost" jumper - his own shadow on the ashes as they were released. Does anyone remember or have this image? I'll never forget it and would love to see it again.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum - am posting in the memorial forum as well.

Thanks - Blue Skies

Susan

Chris Fiala did the video.

Here's the start of the thread:

Unfortunately, all the video and stills links are broken. I wasn't able to find it elsewhere, but I'm sure someone has a copy.

I hope you can find the pictures. If you do, please remember to post them (if you're permitted to do so).

Cool! Do you know if the shadow was planned?

No, not planned.
The angles of the sun, the jumpers, the vidiot, and the timing of the release of ashes would make that almost impossible.
It would be cool to try though.
