    New year’s jump stories

    Cedar Falls, Iowa, December 31st, 1999. 4 of us exited a 182 about 10 seconds before midnight. Cold and windy but well worth it. With Don Briggs, Mike Hoy, and Jeff Eaton. Will never forget that one. Doc http://www.manifestmaster.com/video

    Netflix now has a documentary about Felix Baumgartner and the Red Bull Stratos project. Look for "Mission to the edge of deep space" Doc http://www.manifestmaster.com/video

    16mm movie circa 1978

    I found a 1 minute 16mm skydiving movie on eBay, just uploaded it to you tube http://youtu.be/sBytVNkowcM Apparently it was made for the VA. Looks like late 1970's based on the hockey helmets, R2's, belly band pilot chute, and Strato Star. Anybody recognize any of these guys? (the movie has music but it was so cheesy that I edited it out) Doc http://www.manifestmaster.com/video
