Friday Freakout: Crazy Canopy Collision With Unintentional Cutaway

Andrew Revesz

A 20-way formation skydive quickly escalates into a canopy collision and entanglement at break-off.

According to this skydiver, there was a (brief) entanglement and his cutaway handle got caught on something (bridle, lines?) when they collided, resulting in an unintentional cutaway.

A staggered break off can help provide separation with larger groups, as well as properly tracking to get separation and clear airspace.
