Today was a fabulous day. I jumped 8 times with Steve and Tristan (second and last from the left), with Mark joining for the last four on his recovering ankle:


I never thought I would witness one airline pilot rodeo riding another in freefall: it was vastly amusing, taken in the right spirit.

We flew a head-down three-way formation, a ridiculous conga, throwing people all over the sky, a four-way head-down jump and several permutations of freefly. There’s nothing like laying on your back watching people sitfly and dive down to you with the aeroplane in the background.

We finished the day on the sunset load by pulling immediately on exit at 13,500 feet and flying canopy for about 25 minutes in the evening sun.

Just perfect.
