Recommended Posts

Right out of my Rawa helmet! >:(B|

The locking screw was found in the plane, although i dont remember touching it between jumps. Oh well......

All in all still had an awesome day though. 4 jumps at the Ranch. Wooooo!


What do you do when someone throws a big planet at you?
Throw your pilot chute in defense!

Yep, all the way to the ground, into the grass. Not sure if camera stopped working, or they cut the video short when being burned on to either the DVD or VHS tape, but you see the blades of grass and then it goes black.

I'll have to see if Todd can upload it somewhere and we'll post the link.

That sounds like some cool footage!

Mine was on, i climbed out and gave my count and it just went! I felt it and saw it out of the corner of my eye too, it was on a fun jump with 2 friends. He looked terrified in freefall trying to tell me but i already knew and just gave an i dont know expression and we still had a good jump!

Oh well, wonder where it landed!

My boyfriend lost his camera & protrack to a similar thing in February....

He had a riser strike on opening and lost his entire helmet... the helmet was eventually found but only after it had laid in Sebastian Inlet for 10 days by some ladies dock....[:/]

You haven't found it yet? That bites!

A friend of mine had a similar story a few years back, he had a riser strike and lost his helmet on a ws jump. A few weeks later some locals turned up at the dz with the helmet claiming it landed in their swimming pool.

When we asked them where the camera was they claimed they'd thrown it away because it was "water damaged" from landing in the pool and wasn't salvageable. We still have our doubts about that part of their story.

A buddy of mine in lower Alabama bought a Leo helmet back in the late 80s to start doing vid with.

He lost it one day and the decent tape would make you sick to watch...it spun and oscillated all the way down.

When he found it, it was sitting upright, running with zero damage.

Maybe it's time for someone to bring that technology into the 21st century.
