Planes only crash when they try to land.
Jumping out only makes sense

Yes, I got the pictures and a video. The videographer was a middle school principal DH works with. He jumped every weekend to relieve stress

I'm on my tablet upstairs and this is the only one I can get to right now. The instructor surprised me by doing a somersault btw, he was a six-foot-tall Italian named Mario. Ooh la la!

As a sidebar, I would GLADLY spend that kind of money to launch him into space some days whether we could afford it or not!
I've been a science fiction freak since that age...I am not afraid of space. I am eager to go explore, just wish it would have happened more in my lifetime...getting a wee bit old for the wanders...

YES!! I would go, and write of every minute of it and report it all to the world! I would be the very first journalist in space!

And I'd take a kazillion photos, and after reporting, I would make this all into a best-selling book and make a million dollars!

My career will be perfect!!

With love,
~Cat

Cool pic. I don't recognize the plane. Nice to jump out of a big plane though. I loved jumping out of twins. You get up there so much faster.
Here's one of my pics. I liked to stay in their face.
