Rook Nelson Can't Post

hey i have been hearing some words going around about Rook Nelson(i believe it was Rook). The thing i have heard that he has jumped and successfully landed a 27 ft^2 canopy. Now thsi si something i have heard and am not sure if it is true or not and i was wondering if anyone out there knew if it has really happened. i would appreciate it if someone can tell me. i know the canopy has been flown before but not landed. well thanks later

blue skies and safe landings

It was Andy Farrington of team Xaos that jumped a Xaos 21 21ft last week. Pics are on a thread here no Dz.com

Ohh... I think thew quote from Andy about landing it was like: "Oh hell no"

He regestered a decent speed of 69 mph on a protrack under it Wink

I dont think you could plane it out. I was looking at the canopy on Monday and kept thinking that it was bigger in my mind than it actually was. The vid I watched and the pic posted on dz.com is very deceving size wise.

It hangs there like a toy tempting 30 pund jumpers with gear built for them!
