    No Pilot Chute Belly Reserves

    I've had one slow-speed belly-mount reserve deployment. Jump #11. No pilot chute on reserve. Lake Elsinore, 1978. Classic Mae West! I did exactly what the the EPs called for which was pull the ripcord, toss or stow it (I was told to toss as a student), reach into the reserve and toss in the direction of the spin. Perfect deployment of reserve, which of course took enough pressure off Mae's bra to clear the line, so I had two perfectly good canopies above me. Which left me at the mercy of the wind. One case where two may be worse than one. haha! I landed in the muddy water stretched out virtually on my back due to the two canopies. Further into the water and it could have been a mess (yes, I had a flotation device), or out on the hard pack would have hurt like a ....
  3. I can't seem to navigate the new set up here, but I would like to have any pics from this crash.

Thanks!

    Flip Colmer RIP

    Sad to hear this. He was a great guy, and I loved flying and jumping with him. Blue Skies, Flip.
  5. Mr.owc6 and I were going through our log books and found this. It makes me sad all over again.

    Floater exit

    This is good advice; always look where you want to be. It works on so many levels. lisa WSCR 594 FB 1023 CBDB 9

    This is also something I have noticed for a few weeks. I wonder how many others have noticed and just haven't said anything? Thanks, lisa WSCR 594 FB 1023 CBDB 9
