    Is there a tentative release date? How will you be selling these? Direct or through other retail stores? Bruno

    Well Maintained Javelin Container and PDR126 - $1700

    what year are the container and canopy?
  3. When I worked for Silly in 1980-1982, I heard it from him. Pretty much the way Kevin said. Also, the sound system was pretty good, but all we ever seemed to hear was Marshall Tucker Band. Slots, or Snoots usually had control of music. Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B. Cooper thread"

    Scotty Carbone

    The two memories of Scotty that I have, one at Bill Booth's house in 1980 for a party. I see a Pitts Special fly over doing aerobatics at about 1000' then one last aileron roll and Scotty drops out when it was inverted. The other memory was summer of 1980 at about midnight hanging around Dupuis' hanger and Scotty comes up with beer in hand looking for anyone that wanted to climb some tower out in middle FL to make a BASE jump. Made the jump as the sun was coming up. Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B. Cooper thread"
  5. Yes I know, I built them. That was what I meant by " the loops coming through the reserve container on the bigger reserves." Most of the table totals were on bigger reserves. I never had an issue on reserves like the K-xx, because they were so small the closing loops were very short. Bruno Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B. Cooper thread"
  6. They had a couple of issues with the loops coming through the reserve container on the bigger reserves. A K-xx no problem but anything bigger was possibly an issue. I can't remember if Silly still owned Sky Supplies or someone else when they moved pins. T. K. Donle might remember. Then again memory is iffy on all of us from the 80's. I do remember Alan Gencarelli (sp?) coming in to fix the Singer harness machine. Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B. Cooper thread"

    When I hear "the Gulch" I always think of Ma Death. Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B. Cooper thread"
  8. I made every one of those harnesses until 1983. Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B. Cooper thread"

    When Captain Cunningham left in the 90's it went to strictly GK, so I don't consider it a general populous DZ. BS Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B. Cooper thread"

    What is the best Cessna jump plane

    Are you operating from grass, snow, asphalt? Will you be operating all year or possibly using it in the winter for supply operations? (multi use aircraft) Fuel cost is your biggest concern. How many of each fun jumpers are in the area to support you and what kind of draw do you have for tandems? What is your elevation? BS Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B.

    Scary stories from the old days?

    Do you remember a first name. I work at the tower across the parking lot and can go over on breaks. BS Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B. Cooper thread"

    No age restriction

    Why is no waiver required to fly a plane at 16? Irony: "the History and Trivia section hijacked by the D.B. Cooper thread"
