  1. There are also flights out of the airport at Camarillo California. No one advertising hop n pops tho
  2. old news to most, but I'd never seen the viddy. drogue never inflated. reserve deployed into floppy drogue bridle and entangled pretty easy to pick apart that order of operations

    H5N1 warnings

    Did you read the article in Sunday's NYT? Apparently the reporter spoke to officials at the USDA and was met with conflicting stories and general ignorance of the situation. Not Good.
  4. old but interesting thread. I believe the thunderbow story. I've seen / done multiple instances of in-flight- sorting -shit -out -that -would- have- otherwise- caused -a -cutaway" while doing CReW.
  5. I think there is one currently at the Camarillo CA airport for repairs. It had an issue near Bridgeport (???) on the 395 and landed on the HWY. They took up a truck n trailer, took the wings off and are prepping for repairs. It did NOT crash
  6. not going to read this entire thread. Will just say that I was a "dedicated" NPR listener / member for many years. Not so much any more. It's not so much their politics and mine have diverged, it's more what I call the all black, all gay, all day programming (yes, that's hyperbole, but makes my point). It's rare for me to hear an interesting piece on NPR anymore that isn't pure breaking news. i'm a 65 year old trump despising WASP and I obviously am not their target audience. so be it, I've found many interesting podcasts.

  7. listen and discover for yourself?
  8. I certainly did. From Carl's Masters of the Sky? Music and fil gives me spine chills to this day.
  9. Hi Matt and others following this thread. The closest I got to Visions / Coors was occasionally sharing the DC3 with them. (and buying a Dactyl from Ken Crabtree, nice step up from my Hank Ascuitto (sp?) round) They were professional, efficient, friendly. Al was certainly the "face" of the team to my knowledge, but I don't know who the leader was, when.
  10. It did not work out so well for the locals once they experienced nightfall for the first time
  11. emergency handles? Best practice IMO = Loop for cutaway, D ring for reserve - belly fly and WS, though I do use a soft cutaway handle for CReW
  12. primary changes since 2000? Automatic activation devices are mostly mandated and are socially acceptable (i have one). Canopy flight mode training has stopped many people (not all) from killing themselves
  13. useless since paywall. but thanks anyway
  14. check this out, specially if you're around Skydive Byron. https://pivotal.aero/
