    "Square" bailout parachutes?

    My guess they used stock footage, para gear did have a square bailout rig.
  4. The FAA has no problem with AADs and the ruling on CO2 changed in Aug. to where it's ok. I travel on demos and has been thru all kinds of issues with my rig. I have been stopped with my rig as carry on and my buddy in the next line was let to carry it on, I carry the FAA letter to show the TSA guys the rules when stopped ( you can get a copy off USPAs web site. and I never heard of a "gas cylinders" on an ADD, WTF is that? when asked I tell then there all electric.

    Jerry Lewis skydiver?

    Why yes he is , at 81 he still jumps, and lands in the parking lot of the South Point while the wind are up. Remember his movie "Jumping Jacks", he did his own stunts back in the 50's, he's been a long time supporter of the "Flying Elvi", Ahhh, the magic of TV,......................

    The Passing Of Thundercloud

    He can "stand down" now. If it weren't for Rob, I would have never met my wife.
  7. Cool, now try it from 12.5 a few miles up wind of the DZ. First time I did that I felt very small way up there.

    Denny "Bear" Gaynor died

    Sad to hear the news, Bear was always really cool, seems like a nice way to go.

    Skmoke canisters

    Cold smoke from Paragear, works great as long as they haven't sat in the garage to long. A lot better then duct tape a Mk. 18 to your tennis shoe
  12. Ask Bob Sinclair I remember him talking about it. We Jumped one at Cal-City a few years ago, And I jumped another for a demo in Tx.
