Friday Freakout: Parachute Opens, Catches On Plane Tail

As the saying goes, “Plan the jump and jump the plan.” But sometimes a jump just doesn’t go according to plan. Like when your parachute deploys in the door and wraps around the tail of the plane, tossing you around like a puppet on strings. This video, as well as the premature parachute opening on exit and the GoPro snagging a reserve handle, should serve as constant reminder to always check your gear and protect your handles.
