I may have been the first to jump a Para Commander static line.  It was at Orange, Mass.....Parachutes Incorporated.  I was still a student on the rope but managed to talk Doug Angel into letting me do a static line jump on one of the rental PCs.  Cold day...January or February....thick air....Cessna....exit at 2600 ft agl.  It opened perfectly....steered it to the ground, did a plf....and Doug started breathing again.  It was definitely the first static line PC jump at Orange...but not sure if it was the first ever.  The year was, I think, 1967 or 1968.
