Wow! Popping your pin and having a premature opening while climbing out of the plane is scary stuff, not to mention this could’ve been a lot worse had the canopy caught on the tail on the plane. Remember: it’s always good practice to rotate your rig inwards towards the center of the door while climbing out to avoid rubbing your rig against the door. Protect your gear and stay safe kids.
Big thanks to Adrian Buchini who shared his video with us in the hope that others can learn from this incident.
