I have always wanted to make at least one skydive in my life, and on June
13th, 1998, at Skydive Hastings Airport I finally did it. I knew it would be an incredible experience,
but I had no idea how awesome it would actually be! I had never even been
in a plane before. I didn't experience a plane landing until almost 8 years later.
Just after getting dressed for action.
Last minute tightening.
Climbing into the plane, they didn't tell me I would have to practice
The plane was smaller than it looked, it was hard to "get a leg up"!
A new experience awaits!
I was alot less nervous than I thought I would be.
Let's see how high we are so far.
No big whoop to the jumpmaster. I think he got a few Z's.
Time to jump, we're almost two miles up.
I left the plane!
Which way is up? Where'd that plane go?
Still in freefall, "Hello!"
Now, where did I park?
Almost to Earth.
"We made it!"
Now the video is on the internet! Click here!
