    Airborne Photo

    Post by mk1rceme on Tue Oct 23, 2012 12:29 pm

    I got this photo in a recent bulk purchase. At first I thought it was a copy of a photo but upon removal from the crappy frame it was in I was surprised to see it is an original photo. It is rather large...approx. 12"x18". Has anyone seen this one before? I'm guessing the date is around the late 70's/early 80's.

    It appears the jumpmaster on the left is only attached to the aircraft by his parachute hook up snap, not a safety strap.

    Hi

    Yes, as he would be exiting after the last man in the stick. He didn't always stay in the a/c after the drop.

    The Loady's dress suggests late 70's or early 80's to me.

    Good memories. Nice pic. Very Happy

    I was thinking that myself, but kept my piehole shut. I know squat about military jumps. I've done almost a hundred jumps so far, and jumped with several ex-military guys 'n gals. Usually we are pushing each other out of the way to be the first with our ass in the wind...lol!

    The image looks like it is part of a series to illustrate the various aspects of military parachuting. The aircraft also appears to be a Buffalo as opposed to a Hercules.
