Classic Fighters 2009 #11: Kiwi Blue

Kiwi Blue comprised of staff from the Royal New Zealand Air Force's Parachute Training and Support Unit [PTSU], and provided a good demonstration for the crowd having jumped out of the Douglas DC3, ZK-DAK, just a few second earlier.

I've never done a parachute drop [although I got close a few times, but weather and logistics always intervened - a sign???! :-)], but these guys make it look easy. I must admit to being slightly nervous last year when I guy at a jump zone walked past wearing a t-shift proudly emblazoned with Jump until you bounce. Ouch!
