My first skydive! (6/11/06)
The view over the jump site @ 14,000 ft.
And when the chute opened @ 6000 ft.
This is the northward view. I could see Mt. Washington in nothern New Hampshire!
Finally, the southward view was even more exicting. Yes, I could see the Atlantic Ocean on the other side of Long Island.
altitude = 14,000 feet = over 2.5 miles
±65 seconds in freefall
~125 mph avg
±160 mph max in the Superman dive
plus over five more minutes under the canopy.
