falling

Skydiving in pictures…

The view from the sky over Torquay…magnificent day, about 20 degrees, no clouds and no wind.

This was the hardest part. Not because it was scary, it was just totally counterintuitive to get out of a moving plane. Plus when you’re going at several hundred kilometres an hour there’s a whole lot of wind going past.

Woo! Nothing but excitement!

Falling away from the plane as quickly as possible…

Freefalling at 220 kph…

Not the most attractive look, but hey, it’s pretty hard to avoid.

The magnificent view – surprisingly enough, I was able to enjoy it while falling.

Under the parachute – had a go of steering. No wind meant the landing was very fast, and not particularly pretty.

Back safely on the ground.
