Come across these old pics of me jumping with old T10. Anyone else remember what it feels like to land or crash land as it really is, one of these old "pigs" chute? Hold on, its gonna hurt. Lol

Never jumped that chute, but soft knees and roll don’t work at 20mph in a pot-hole filled DZ. Everyone I know who had to fall out of the sky in one of those talk shit about them.

I only did a few static line jumps and I managed to hurt myself there. I'd be the guy who "died on the ole' drop zone" riding that pig down ;)

They were never known for comfort that's for damn certain. Safety, never had a problem with one getting to the ground, maybe not always in a location I intended though. I started jumping squares in 1996. Been a blessing on the knees ever since.

HA! I was riding those big bastards for over a decade beginning in early '85 got my wings at Ft Benning of course just before heading down to Panama city Fl. for some more "projects" and "training in an alien environment" as they called it at the diving and salvage training center which was brand new at the time...lol
