Second pass or in the 180 I believe. Al was a close neighbor and probably why I always had an interest in skydiving. He sold me his original Stratostar, later was the first person to grab me in freefall. I was the first to snag him under canopy. Truly a great person. blue sky's friend!
Yes he did, I had one new 1976 ish, Rings and ropes Stratostar and 24 ' flat w/ 4 line release. It had cones and pins sort of like a miniature T-bow piggyback. Even had a jesus string on the reserve.
