This was nothing I had ever wanted to do, but you don’t say no to these guys! Freefall and Interview To make the experience even more special, I decided to conduct the world’s first mid-skydive interview. We talk about the technology that makes these jumps possible. Safe Landing After a fantastic dive, SFC Michael Elliott brought us in for a great landing! 46 Shares Google+ 0 Twitter 41 Facebook 5 LinkedIn 0 Reddit 0 Pin It Share 0 Buffer 0 46 Shares × Our email robots can be trusted.

All that planning, training and great anticipation, did it seam like it was all over too quickly? It’s funny, all that technology & that spanning strap directly above you was making most of the noise, otherwise I could hear you fine. Did you notice how fast the plane disappeared away from you? But it was very exciting & I’m so glad you had fun. What a great resume you have now.. “B” Josh September 2, 2010 What was the song playing when you jumped off the plane? Brian Buckland September 2, 2010 Welcome to the sky Picture perfect landing btw…..very nice! You should do a piece on the technology used for skydiving….the parachutes / video & still equipment to record the experience! Just a thought! Dennis Hall September 2, 2010 Congratulations Cali! Wow! Dennis Bill Riski September 2, 2010 Great episode. Fun just to watch and admire how you brought all the video & audio together (and a few subtitles – thanks for that.) I enjoyed it so much I broke down and made a contribution. Cali Lewis September 1, 2010 Hmm…I don’t know what the gloves said. I was too busy cutting a hole in them for the camera to go in that I didn’t pay attention! Phyllis September 1, 2010 That was amazing – I was nervous for you! Garrett Smith September 1, 2010 What were the gloves you both were wearing? The N? Was it for Navy??
