Great series, Jim. Like Donna, that is about as close as I am going to get to skydiving. When I was in the air force, I used to watch others do competition jumping near Tyndall AFB, Panama City, Fla. I don't think the jump would have bothered me, just the sudden stop.

Thanks Donna! I think I have to agree with you regarding jumping from a plane! Jim

Thanks Annie! It was really neat to be there! I may go again on their last day, Sat, to see if they can break the record! Jim

Crazy, crazy people, wish I was young enough and had enough nerve to do it. As spread out as they are in that third photo it looks like they could never get to where they were in the next. Neat shots Jim and must be fun to watch.
