    Lew Sanborn Movie 1960's

    I have a copy also; it's on the Jumptown Facebook page. I'm guessing it's 1960. It was the predecessor to "A Sport is Born." Some of the scenes in "Now it's" were filmed in California. HW

    Arthritic hip anyone?

    The longer you wait, the more it will hurt. I've got about 500 jumps on a Titanium hip. HW

    Irvin Delta2 Parawing

    Nice. Most old farts here will know, but talk about the strap hanging off the bottom of the canopy. HW

    jumping the UT-15 rig

    I have a UT-15 manual (packing and using), if you want to pay for a photocopy. Oh, yes, it's in Russian. HW

    GoPro, anyoned disassembled it ?

    Not yet, but as mine is broken (knocked off someone else's helmet in Eloy last month), I probably will do so this week. HW

    Brian Williams, one of the original "Arvin Goodguys," was at the reunion in Felicity, CA last month. He's got stories. Some of them are here. HW

    Flying through three different states

    You can easily do two states under canopy (even without wingsuits) at Pepperell, MA (just south of the New Hampshire line) and Vermont Skydiving Adventures (separated from New York by Lake Champlain.) HW

    What else can we possibly post? (Well, there is a new windblade in the 121PM colors). (And a new set of door/exit lights which blink like Christmas tree ornaments.) I've made several jumps out of it/her this week. HW

    cx100 and mac's

    Current Final Cut Pro will import from the camera via USB using Log and Transfer (but not Log and Capture), and will convert from AVCHD on input (slowly). In my experience, it will not transfer files already on disk (but I could be wrong.) My current workflow (though not exactly real time) is to copy the files to an external drive, then use the Convert function of Toast 10 to convert to a format FCP can import. If I have a bunch of files, I just batch up the conversion. HW

    Jack Jorens

    A thread about him here. I'm not sure whether it was him on the cover; I'll have to find my issue or ask Peter Lake or Dick Tomkins, both of whom were also on the expedition. Jack Joerns was well known for much more than this. HW
  23. But it's now "out of stock." HW

    The Chute Shop was a major dealer and gear store which for many years published a big catalog (see attached) like Para-Gear or Square One do now. It was a division of North American Aerodynamics, which made rigs and other stuff, but the Chute Shop also sold gear from other manufacturers. I've seen Johnny Higgins, one of the owners, a couple of times in the past few years; he lives in NC now. HW (The cover shot, by Carl Boenish, shows Ted Webster, Max Kelly and Ron Bluff jumping over a glacier in Switzerland.)
