Throwback Thursday: Rare Footage of The 1972 World Parachuting Championships

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

This is rare footage from the World Parachuting Championships in Tahlequah, Oklahoma in 1972, and it’s definitely throwback-worthy.

This production was primarily filmed, edited and produced by Carl Boenish and Ted Webster (who also narrated). Other contributing cinematographers were Rich Piccirilli, Lynn Fogleman, Sam Alexander and Bill Smith. Portions of this film were used in Carl’s late 70’s production, “Playground in the Sky.”

Big thanks to Randy Forbes for sharing this classic video.
