    Default Skydiver over Korotych Airfield near Kharkov discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Skydiver over Korotych Airfield near Kharkov

    A fixed base operator at a sky diving airport operates one or more aircraft that takes groups of skydivers up for a fee.



    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).

    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!
