Tandem Skydive Spins Out of Control, Gets Entangled With Drogue

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

Well the exit for this tandem skydive got a little messy, but it has a happy ending.

Shortly after exit, the tandem instructor and passenger end up on their back with no drogue out and then spin out of control. The instructor wasn’t able to recover from the spin and he pitched the drogue while they were still on their back, which got caught around both of their legs.

Once the drogue entanglement cleared, the instructor was able to counter the spin. It sounds like the cameraman was pretty excited about the happy ending too wink 😉
