Strong werk, Vegas! Pima is top of the short list, especially after seeing yer pics!
What the hay is the story on the hybrid B-29?

Thanks Reilly! It's the best I have been to thus far. And that's actually a B-50, an upgraded version of the 29. Not many of them had the jets, so it's a very rare bird.

(Newser) Ė A BASE jumper apparently trying to make it to the floor of an Idaho canyon instead ended up stuck on the canyon wall Tuesday night, KMVT reports. Emergency responders were called to the scene in Twin Falls, where one descended the cliff face to perform a rope rescue, CBS News reports. Witnesses said another man made the same jump but did end up safe on the floor of the canyon. The man who was rescued declined medical attention.

Nice vid! Sure looked like there were almost some bad tangles! It might have been due to the long lensí foreshortening. As big as those chutes were they landed harder than my knees and back would like.

Nice conditions for a re-qual day (assuming, since a 4th ID guy snuck in among the 82/101).
JM called ground wind pretty accurately. Or he was blowing kisses at the number 4 jumper in his stick.

but I couldn't help smiling when both had made it. even pumped my fist (totally involuntary, like the smiling -- like I said, utterly jackass, indefensibly bad-judgment stunt)

Reilly,
Brother Chad a retired Marine Col. hates helos,
told me he came close to dying in them twice.

First time was during a training exercise in Yuma,
the pilot of the Sikorsky CH 56 lost control while lifting an artillery Howitzer. Luckily the pilot cut loose the Howitzer and regained control
seconds before they decked.

Second time was in Iraq on a flight between Bagdad and Fallujah in a Blackhawk. He told me he watched an RPG fly in one open side door and out the other. Talk about a close call!

He's definitely the badass of family.

Say buh-bye, A380! Gotta say I enjoy riding in them. When yer in business on the top deck you can barely hear the engines. Even at takeoff power you can whisper to yer mate.
