And now for something completely different...
Daniel Herndon of +Skydive Airtight
had a tangled main chute, couldn't untwist the cables, and had to use the reserve, all caught on camera. Amazing footage!
Of course, most media zeroed in on the word "lost" -- no, this is not really "losing" a parachute (which most people would think as meaning a sudden, unexpected detachment). This is intentionally getting rid of the tangled one ("cut-away") so the reserve won't also
get tangled. KOCO in Oklahoma City seemed to be one of the few media outlets to understand the difference. Good on them.
The farm remains unbought for another day! #NoBounce
