Campbell’s nasty double malfunction is the stuff skydivers’ nightmares are made of. It starts off with a pilot chute in tow due to a bridle wrap. He pulls his cutaway and then his reserve, but the main canopy comes out and wraps around his reserve lines due to the dual-sided RSL, which chokes off the... Watch Video »

A skydive student has a seizure in freefall while doing his AFF Level 5. The seizure begins at 9,000 feet, the instructor deploys the student’s canopy at 4,000 feet, then the student regains consciousness at 3,000 feet and lands safely. Scary stuff. It’s rare that a skydiving video fit for our Friday Freakout series gets... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: How NOT To Pack A Parachute

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Avoids Deadly Collision ...

A 2-way tracking jump nearly ends in disaster when both jumpers lose sight of each other and fly through each other’s airspace on opening. The trailing skydiver narrowly misses the “leader” as he deploys, skimming the parachute by (what appears to be) inches. This is how accidents/fatalities happen, which could’ve been avoided by flying a... Watch Video »

Line twists lead to a cutaway, which sends a skydiver flying through another canopy’s airspace. Yet another reason why proper separation at break-off is so important. And an RSL isn’t a bad idea either, but I’m sure some of you have an opinion about that. Watch Video »

Yes, this AFF student spins out of control. And yes, he pulls his reserve at 9,000 feet. But in his defense, the instructor unexpectedly induced the spin after telling the student to pull his reserve if he got separated for any reason (according to the videographer). Not. Cool. Watch Video »

This girl is still game for her tandem jump, but she screams her ass off on the way to the door. This is a pretty tame “screamer” compared to the grown man crying before his tandem or the woman freaking out on her tandem exit. What do you think… at what point should a tandem... Watch Video »
