This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile34480/Skydiver-over-Korotych-Airfield-near-Kharkov.htm>Skydiver over Korotych Airfield near Kharkov</a></b><br><br>A fixed base operator at a sky diving airport operates one or more aircraft that takes groups of skydivers up for a fee.<br />
<br />
A typical jump involves individuals jumping out of an aircraft (usually an airplane, but sometimes a helicopter or even the gondola of a balloon), at approximately 4,000 meters (around 13,000 feet) altitude, and free-falling for a period of time (about a minute)[1] before activating a parachute to slow the landing down to safe speeds (about 5 to 7 minutes).<br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=112807/781122Skydivers.jpg>

This is flat-out awesome, McMaster! I remember 'way back' in the past when someone was claiming to see skydivers that were really just hairs and dust on aerial photograph negatives. At the time I thought we'd probably never manage to catch any skydivers in the act.

I'm glad to be proven wrong. Cool find! :D
