    Interstate Battery Commercial

    Hmm.. apparently it wasn't a priority for Interstate Battery. I never asked about the jumpsuits. Never even thought about it till now.

    Interstate Battery Commercial

    I have no idea. I am not in the commercial and had nothing to do with it, other then observing them at the dropzone. It's just the usual lawyer's disclaimer would be my guess.

    I agree, it's more then most whuffos get to see. Shows a more realistic view of skydiving.

    Interstate Battery Commercial

    From what I was told this was all done in a very short time frame. In a matter of weeks. So no time to build new jumpsuits. The skydiving part was done over two days, maybe three. I know it was done over a Saturday and Sunday not sure about Monday as I have to work weekdays. But then again someone always has to come up with a negative critic.

    http://youtu.be/reTpk-phw4s I don't know if anyone has posted this yet, but this was shot at Skydive Dallas. Pretty cool. The skydving was organized by Al Hively and Scott Latinis. It was fun to watch this whole thing being organized. They all did a great job. Looks great.

    Any rumors on a Chicago tunnel?

    I have family in Elgin so it will be convenient for me.

    One up on Jeb?????

    That is by far the most insane stunt I have ever seen! No room for error at all. Pretty amazing!

    Any rumors on a Chicago tunnel?

    I spoke directly with the CEO of iFly so it's not second hand. "Ground was broken" doesn't mean major construction has started. It wouldn't be noticeable. But we can't start booking time till it's up and being tested.

    Any rumors on a Chicago tunnel?

    The Dallas tunnel is supposed to be up and running early next year. I don't think they have started major construction yet. I was told they have broken ground. I don't know anything about any other location.

    peregrine video

    Some people just like to create controversy and conspiracy theories. Apparently they have nothing better to do.
  12. I think it's more accurate to say Rich People at their worst. I don't think it necessarily depends on where the money comes from.

    PD new canopy "Peregrine"

    Many of the CREW canopies are set up for sub terminal openings only. No deployment bag(diaper instead), mesh slider. The opening shock from a terminal deployment would be very painful.

    So is that a 9 cell cross braced canopy?

    Any rumors on a Chicago tunnel?

    I don't know the answer to that, but if I had to guess, it's probably due to the logistics of building the tunnels. From what I was told the funding has been secured and they are now in the planning and building phase with the Austin tunnel as the first one and Dallas second on the list of locations. The said what the order was for the next four but I don't remember it. Next four are Dallas, Chicago, New York and Houston. Not in that order. All was really paying attention to was the new tunnel that is supposed to be built in Dallas.
