    Then it wouldn't be "perfectly good", would it...;P :cool: ;f
     
  4. It's a LOT of fun :) I've made 3 sport static jumps, and I'd like to try free-fall, but I don't know if my knees can take much more.

    HOO-AH!! How I do miss jumping. So much so that I've decided to go sky diving this summer. I'm going to use my State tax returns to go AFF!!

    All the Way and then Some!! ^c

    The ironic thing is, that Van Halen song (Jump!!) was very populaar when I was in Jump School (1984). It was always being played on the jukebox of the Pizza Parlor. It does bring back memories.
     
  8. Love the video. It has been about 10 yrs. since my last jump. The only thing I don't miss about it was the in-flight-rigging and pre-jump!

    I have a video of me skydiving civilian and it has the same Van Halen tune! I think it's a must for any skydiving video.

    In Recon in the Marines we were taught to do Halo jumps for insertions[​IMG]
    Was any other service units allowed in 1968?

    There is no such thing as a perfectly good airplane. Just ask a pilot. ;f

    Carlos, what was your class number in 1984 for BAC? I graduated Class 33-84 in July 1984.
     
  16. Yes, Special Forces has been training in HALO & HAHO jumps since the early 60's. Special Forces, so far has the only Combat HALO team jump. It was done in Vietnam.

    I went through HALO school in '64. We were using Para-Commanders in those days.

    As I recall, the Marines and SEALs all go through the HALO school at the Yuma, AZ test center. It's run by the US Army Special Forces. ;f

    Might be "Perfectly Good" but I was always so cramped and stuffed in the bird, I was always ready to go out. Being the first in the plane, and last out, I knew if the plane developed a case of Murpheys Law, I would not get out. Stand Up, Hook up, EQ Check and get me the hell out of there.
