Friday Freakout: Student’s Toggle Fires. In Freefall. WTF?

Posted by Andrew Revesz

What do you do when your AFF student’s toggle comes unstowed in freefall? Do nothing? Watch it flop around like spaghetti? The instructor in this video had a pretty sweet (slash scary, slash dangerous) save, and managed to unstow the other toggle on deployment. Luckily it worked; the student had a nice on-heading opening and the instructor landed with all 10 fingers. What a lucky grab.
