The plane in the comic is as accurate a copy of the Dornier DO 28 D2 (callsign D-IEDO) as I could manage. She’s a pretty colorful bird! And I can proudly say, that I did not rip off the belly radio antenna when I jumped!
The Para Club is celebrating it’s 30th birthday this summer! So, happy birthday to all the brave men and women over there!
You hear this line a lot from pilots. And I don’t mean “I’m a pilot”, but “Why jump out of a perfectly safe plane?”. Apparently, as I was already musing a couple of days ago, it seems that to pilots, jumping out of a functioning plane is about as desirable as jumping out of a driving car would be to everybody else.
Chuck sure looks like he’s looking forward to it though!
