…because thinking is just too difficult sometimes, and because I'm abroad and can't climb...this thread inspired me to make an app (I know, shameless plug). Flight rules at a glance, for any METAR station in the world. I hope it proves useful (or at least interesting) for the few of you who fly when you're not busy climbing or bickering on the taco.

Errr… that doesn't look good. Do skydivers and planes generally land in the same place at other airports.

One wouldn't think it a long term survival strategy to regularly land on an active runway.

Nice posts all!

Snake, if I had known you were at Mesquite I would have ran up there, I haven't seen Brad and Co in a while.

Here's some more cave jumping, Cave of Swallows in Mexico.

Skydiving Site Dispute Preceded Police Shooting

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say a dispute about a recreational vehicle in a Las Vegas-area skydiving landing zone preceded an armed confrontation and police shooting that left a man dead during the weekend.

Police Capt. Matt McCarthy tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal a skydiving company employee summoned police Sunday morning after a man in an RV wielded a rifle and refused to leave a drop zone near Jean Airport.

McCarthy says the man barricaded himself in the RV and was shot dead after he pointed a rifle at SWAT officers. No one else was hurt.

Jean Airport is off Interstate 15, about 30 miles south of Las Vegas.

It was the fourth officer-involved shooting this year involving Las Vegas police.

This afternoon, I'm going to jump with the Canadian military demo team, the "Skyhawks". They needed some volunteer meat sacks to train tandems. Sometimes the perks of my job are kinda cool.

Make sure you pack that thing right, eh budday?

And you firearms enthusiasts? Please don't shoot at us, that's their canopy not Pass the Penis Pete's ledge up there:
