Did you notice the report you are quoting in response to the post above you was written by the poster above you? :S



Actually I was responding to the original poster. :P

What's your point? Perhaps some people are interested in seeing the additional details in the USPA blog post.

I stand corrected, but still a better number than the last few years.



Total US fatalities include non-civilian deaths too, and there were quite a few of those in 2009.

I think if we are going to include military static line numbers we should include BASE numbers as well.

Neither are all that similar to the skydives I do.

Just my opinion mind you.
