Friday Freakout: High Speed Skydiving Collision & Premature Opening

Posted by Andrew R.

A high speed collision on a tracking jump is a scary thing. As a result, one of the skydivers was winded from the impact, panicked, and prematurely deployed their parachute mid-skydive, narrowly missing another skydiver on opening. This incident should serve as a reminder to NEVER bomb a formation or cut people off, and shows why it’s so important to come in on level from the side of the formation before taking your slot/dock. Repeat after me: “level, slot, dock… level, slot, dock.” Please play safe out there people.
