    Whats your limits?

    I hope that tower had an elevator. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  2. Why did you say you got used as a cash cow? And what's different now? "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    practicing the arch upside down?

    Not only does skydiving training devote much time to teach correct body position to try to develop muscle memory, you have to remember that a student also learns by using visual cues. I don't think it is wise to have them look at the world upside down. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  4. I'm a skydiver and the music I like best is the singing of two turbines spooling up. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    Howdy from Wake Island

    You don't want to disturb holey grounds. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    Wind tunnel near Ft. Walton Beach

    Orlando! Now we're getting somewhere! Is this Orlando, Nebraska? You know, the way the Gulf of Mexico kinda gets in the way of automobile travel, going from the Florida panhandle to Orlando might be longer than going to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, home of Dolly World and all that touristy stuff. I assume the wind tunnel is still there? To the original poster, I'm afraid you're out of luck finding a conveniently close wind tunnel to Ft. Walton Beach. I've vacationed there. It's one of my favorite places. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    Smaller TI's shooting Handycam

    Do you charge a student to video themselves? "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    Noob Cartoons: Skydiving Duck

    You will soon notice that on the DZ what you do in the other world has absolutely no importance. I have jumped with trauma surgeons, Marine Lt. Colonels, several PhDs, an astronaut (!), and lots of waitresses & bartenders. All that gets pushed aside when you put your rig on. Everybody's equal. In the everyday world skydiving is so outside the realm of normalcy that I don't doubt that your friends and co-workers gossip about you around the water fountain and look at you with a certain amount of excitement and wonder. Soak it up. Enjoy your fame. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    16 yo tandem

    Do you think the father wrote this? Or a 16-year-old? An uneducated 16-year-old. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    Do you peel fruit?

    I peel my eggs before eating. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    Possible Skydiving Reality Show

    It could be the TV shows catchphrase, "Your one warning". "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    Possible Skydiving Reality Show

    The networks are promoting their new shows on YouTube? "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    Vintage jump suits

    I think Sears might still sell the Farmer John's. The French ParaBoots? Can't help you there. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  14. So THAT'S why I got into skydiving. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  15. It could be one of your dearly-departed friends swooping down to dock on you but from being out of practice they dropped onto your back instead. You never know. It might have happened. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
