I don't know....doesn't seem natural to jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

Re: ot/ AAAHH!! i just jumped out of a plane

Hehe, you are supposing they are "perfectly good planes". I used to have an aunt who was big into skydiving, their favorite "busdriver" swore up and down he would never jump if he didn't have to. So one day I asked him, why he always wore a parachute, if he wasn't going to jump out of a "perfectly good plane". His reply: "They aren't."

Re: ot/ AAAHH!! i just jumped out of a plane

My doctor says I'm nuts, but I still spend a day or two a year jumping...

My first trip out of the plane was in the ARMY... It was like trying to push a cat into the toilet!
Once out, I loved it...

Just beware of getting addicted to adrenalin...
you will start looking at your VCR and saying...."There is One jump..." The TV, "There is another jump....".
I've never done crack, but it can't feel any better than a free fall!


So many cats, so few recipes...

Re: ot/ AAAHH!! i just jumped out of a plane

It's AWESOME isn't it?! Now if you want to talk scary, there's no way your gonna attach a rubber band to my a$$ and I'm going to jump off a bridge or crane. Forget that. For some reason that doesn't seem safe to me.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: ot/ AAAHH!! i just jumped out of a plane

I did a tandem jump once when I visited Las Vegas a couple years ago. It was fun, about a 45 second free-fall. Then the chute opened. It was different than I imagined, only felt like I was falling for a brief second when we first jumped (more like fell over) out. Then it was like you were snorkeling in deep water, just kinda floating, my brother did it at the same time & he was below us. The most scary part was all the papers they made us sign & the video we had to watch warning us....

I'd do it again, it was fun.

Re: ot/ AAAHH!! i just jumped out of a plane

I spent seven years in the Rangers doing that...in fact I was HALO (High Altitude Low Opening). That would be jumping at 30,000 feet, free falling for 28,000 or so then poping the wad.
