TGT, I just came across an article about Nalls and his Harrier restoration in an old ('10?) edition of Sport Aviation (EAA pub). He had volunteers from a nearby USMC base to help with his modifications and rebuild, I think.

A proud aircraft, in my eyes as pretty as a Warthog (which may not be saying much).

The shop is right about where he finishes his turn onto final.

Glad I was out of the office that day!

Can't claim credit for shooting it, just found it.

I was at a job site in Big Bear all day.

When ever there's a fire and they use Santa Fe dam for reloading their patter puts them right over the top of the office. It's exciting the first time, but gets real annoying fast.

Geez, Chief, no wonder he got a wave-off!
And do I see the LSO giving him the finger? ;-)

The Driver & Rio got their wings pulled for this stunt.


Both the Driver & Rio had pending disciplinary issues due to other recent major deviations from flight safety SOP's and it was their last act of defiance.

Wingsuit fatality in the Grand Canyon

10:30 a.m update: Coconino County Sheriff's Office officials confirm that a Search and Rescue team has reached the body and confirmed the BASE jumper is dead. A crew is transporting the body from the Confluence of the Little Colorado and Colorado Rivers to the rim, where the body will be picked up by medical examiners. Authorities are now working to notify the BASE jumper's next of kin.

9:30 a.m update:

Search and Rescue teams are trying to locate a missing BASE jumper in the Little Colorado River Gorge near Grand Canyon National Park. A friend of the missing jumper said the man leapt from a cliff on the north side of the canyon yesterday afternoon wearing a red wingsuit, according to the Coconino County Sheriff's Office.

After the friend didn't hear from the BASE jumper, he looked into the canyon and saw a red spot that he believed to be his friend's body.

The National Park Service called Coconino County Search and Rescue at about 6 p.m. Friday. A Department of Public Safety helicopter was involved in another operation at the time and unavailable to assist in the search.

However, a Guardian Air helicopter flew into the canyon at about 8 p.m. Friday, but was unable to locate the red spot.

Search and Rescue crews are currently prepping a short haul team to fly into the canyon and determine if there is a body.

A 37-year-old Norwegian wingsuit BASE jumper was killed at the Little Colorado River Gorge in 2012 when a gust of wind blew him into a cliff.

More details in regards to the young doctor who leapt to his death near the Confluence. What a sad incident:


http://calgary.ctvnews.ca/calgary-doctor-killed-in-grand-canyon-base-jumping-fall-1.1658027

A respirologist from Calgary has died after a fall during a wing suit jump from the edge of the Grand Canyon in Arizona on Friday.

According to the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, David Stather and a group of friends were attempting a base jump at a location near the confluence of the Colorado River and the Little Colorado River in Arizona. Stather was equipped with a wing suit and a parachute.

Stather’s friends reported the disappearance of the 41-year-old after he failed to arrive at the canyon floor. Stather’s parachute was spotted by members of the group as they hiked out of the canyon at a spot nearly 2,000 feet from the jump site.

Stather's family says he loved the outdoors.

Helicopters were unable to retrieve Stather on Friday evening, due to darkness, but an Arizona Department of Public Safety helicopter returned to the area on Saturday morning.

Search and Rescue members and the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office located Stather’s body and confirmed his death. Stather’s death is believed to have been the result of fall trauma but the Coconino Country Medical Examiner has launched an investigation.

Stather, an Alberta Health Services employee, is survived by his parents in Guelph, Ontario.
His family released a statement on Monday saying:

We are so very proud of our son in all of his professional accomplishments, especially for all of the lives he's saved and touched in his life. He loved most outdoor sports and getting the most out of life.
We, as well as his younger brother and two sisters will miss him dearly.

Wow, TGT, that was pretty cool. And he landed on his feet!
His sigh at the end said it all, eh?
