Who said Kiwi's can't fly, jumped 12,000 feet today

Paid for my two sons and me to jump a tandem jump at Ashburton, New Zealand at 12,000 feet. Ashburton is 80km north of me, my wife laughed so hard at my face she nearly peed her pants.

Still buzzing 12 hrs later.

Before Jump




In the plan as my son goes out the door, I'm not even watching that much as concerned about how I'm going to handle it.




Scary moment with feet hanging outside plane at 12,000 feet just before falling.



Underway






Thank goodness the chute opened



Back on the ground


The red chute coming in in the last photo is my son, he went out first but landed last.

Phil - nice, calm demeanor on your face when the 'chute opened....

I figure I dropped thousands of guys from C130s in the RCAF, but like MOST pilots - I'm NOT "in love" w/ the whole idea of leaving a SERVICEABLE airplane while it's airborne...!

This is the next jump which we are planning for a ride over to the west coast to Franz Josef and jump from 19,000 feet. Great view on NZ highest mountain, Mount Cook.
