Costly little "oops". Don't see an impact fireball think that was outside or open to the outside? Post event forensics are always fun to sift through.

I thought this was a great video of a WWII paratrooper getting in another jump.

That is one lucky old soldier. They dodged a big one in 44' and on this jump. Old bones don't like another jumper landing on top of them like that!

I thought that too - imagine living through that Hell, re-enacting (whatever you want to call it when a 97 year jumps from an airplane) and then hurting yourself when your team jumper lands on top of you!

Yeah, I noticed the hit numbers drop the other day. Lost 424 hits, wonder what happened?
