Getting Ready to Jump
To kick off OpenCamp, the US Army Golden Knights parachute team invited me on a tandem skydive. 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!

    It looked so easy. 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”

    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!

    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.

    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! :)

    What were the gloves you both were wearing? The N? Was it for Navy??
