Friday Freakout: 2 Skydivers Knocked Out From Coll...

This situation escalates quickly, from a simple angle jump to two skydivers being knocked out in freefall. The girl in the white jumpsuit loses control and hits another skydiver in the back of the head/neck. She gets knocked out for the duration of the jump and is saved by her Cypres. The “victim” also gets... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Passes Out From Hypoxia In Freefall

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Passes Out From Hypoxia ...

What’s it like to pass out from hypoxia in freefall? Well, it starts with 5 skydivers at 22,000 feet and only 4 oxygen masks. Those numbers just don’t add up. After exiting the plane, one of the skydivers becomes unconscious in freefall; his 2 friends have to stabilize him and deploy his main parachute. When... Watch Video »

This laser jump was going according to plan, with nothing but fun and smiles… until one of these skydivers has a snappy premature opening on his back (with toilet paper in his hand, no less). The situation got worse: his reserve deployed into his main canopy, which was still tangled around him when he cutaway.... Watch Video »

Well this makes for one hell of an exciting AFF Level 2 jump, and serves as a friendly reminder that ANY camera on your helmet can be a snag hazard, not just a GoPro. In this case, the student’s pilot chute wraps around her instructor’s “traditional” camera as she deploys. Luckily she notices what’s going... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Crazy Canopy Collision, Double Cu...

There’s lots of space in the sky… until you get twisted up with line twists, spin out of control, then hit your friend under canopy, causing both of you to cutaway. Solution? More horizontal separation never hurts, but hitting another canopy does. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Bad BASE Exit = Terrifying Bridle Wrap

Friday Freakout: Bad BASE Exit = Terrifying Bridle...

As the saying goes, timing is everything… especially in BASE when your life depends on it. I’m sure this wasn’t his best exit; in fact, it was probably the most terrifying exit of his life. But he lived to tell the story. Don’t do this, live and learn, and stay alive. Watch Video »

When kamikaze skydivers join a tracking jump, people (almost) die! Luckily this didn’t end in fatality, but it really doesn’t get much closer than this. Read more about tracking incidents here, and please stay safe out there. Watch Video »

Well, it’s more like the plane almost hit the skydiver. Either way, our friends at Team Skyscrapers had some underwear to change after this close call. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Head Down Premature Openings Suck!

Friday Freakout: Head Down Premature Openings Suck...

A loose BOC + unsecured pilot chute + head down flying = snappy premature opening. Plus, jumping with Ben Nelson didn’t help the situation either. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: HOLY SH*T, That Was Close!

Friday Freakout: HOLY SH*T, That Was Close!

I bet both of these skydivers have never been so grateful for an off-heading opening. Phew! Zoo dive: 1, Death: 0. Watch Video »

There isn’t too much snow around the Perrine Bridge in the middle of July with 100 degree temps. So what’s a pro skier like Mike Wilson and his crew supposed to do when they have an idea to pull off a rail slide to BASE jump? Import ice, of course, and use a wood chipper... Watch Video »

Stupid DOES hurt (a little too much in this case). Videographer Tim gets too close to “Origami Flying Mofo” and a nasty canopy wrap ensues. Origami Mofo cuts away, but Tim’s not done yet — his lines entangle the reserve, which turns into a blue ball of nylon. Tim impacts a cornfield, breaking his pelvis,... Watch Video »

Jumping off a bridge, getting whipped into line twists on opening, then squeezing a parachute through rappel lines and landing on railroad tracks isn’t really my thing. BUT, it certainly makes for an entertaining Bridge Day video. Glad the star of this show landed safely with an awesome story to tell. Watch Video »

A bridle wrapped around a student’s foot certainly isn’t an ideal deployment, but it beats having the bridle wrapped around the neck like this other AFF student. Watch Video »

Nothing makes you shit the proverbial bed than when you’re an AFF student running out of altitude and you deploy your parachute while spinning on your back / head down. Great job by the student on getting his parachute out despite the situation. As they say: never sacrifice altitude for stability. Watch Video »
