Tandem Skydive

I've always wanted to skydive, and a tandem jump is the simplest way to do it. On the 30th August 2004, I jumped out of a plane at 10,000 feet with The Devon & Somerset Parachute School. I got ~30 seconds of freefall at speeds in access of 120mph, which is an amazing experience, and the view at that height is breathtaking.

How to fall

Height of fashion. We're given a final briefing before takeoff in the Cessna 206 over Dunkeswell.

Touched down

Touch-down. You can probably tell that I enjoyed it.
