My new Baby

Recommended Posts

I don't like the word "Base" on the rig.
"Is that a base-rig?"
"No officer, I' am coming from my dropzone. This is just a 'parachute'! "

Not that I doubt that this could happen, but has this ever actually happened to you, or is it more like that scenario where the plane breaks in half, some woman screams "Please, save my baby!" as I'm gearing up, I grab the kid, etc., etc., and land in the middle of the Superbowl in front of a roaring crowd?

The part where the officer knows the words "base" and "rig", and doesn't just bust your ass on the spot for having a parachute seems questionable.

I know of one case in which this actually happened, and the jumper was released. The punch line was that the other 2 jumpers with him (the cop didn't see anyone jump) admitted they had been jumping, and got busted. The guy who said he had just come out from the DZ to watch, and that his was just an airplane skydiving rig, got away scot free.
