It was for this reason I have developed the virtual parachute jump, called
Latin name. (elastico el bobtrousio).
You go up in the aircraft complete with rig, the difference being, on exit
you are only performing a bunjee jump, now heres the good bit, as you spring
down you can decide if you wish to opt for the full experience, which
a knife is put through the bunjee rope giving you a parachute drop, if you
you are simply hoisted back on board, and called a jessie.
This needed testing.
As nobody would volunteer I decided to give it a go, the pilot wanted to
know why I had
1200ft of elasticated rope in his plane, I told him it was a new type of
static line, silly ba**ard bought it.
Ok 5000 Grounddiver
Go for it...............
What a feeling jumping out watching your altimeter display a descent, and
then gain altitude, the pilot was looking out of his cockpit window and
frowning, it then dawned on me that I had nobody with me to cut the bloody
rope !!!! shit.
As I sprang back up past his cockpit I indicated to the pilot I needed help,
by making a scissor action with my fingers, as I came up again he was
showing the hand signal for a stone.
The daft b*s**rd was playing paper scissors stone with me.
Luckily on my 65th bounce the propeller of the aircraft severed the bunjee
line, I was in freefall, at 1500 I pulled the main everything run sweetly,
received another standing ovation at the DZ.
I walked of the field and into the changing rooms I noticed the further I
walked the more
difficult it was getting, must have been the struggle in mid air making me
As I closed the changing room door I felt the strain go away.
just as I wrestled my trousers off, Brian opened the changing room door the
I was dragged out the door at 100+ straight back across the DZ and
headbutted the windsock pole.
