Mr. Bill Skydive Dive 1995: My Favorite Jump by Marcus Antebi
That little speck falling away from the other little speck under his parachute was me! This photo was taken in 1995 over DeLand, Florida. By Joe X. I can not remember his full name. He was great guy, he passed away in a motorcycle accident some years ago.
This is a silly stunt skydive where both people leave the airplane with their own parachute systems, however, I am holding on to the harness system of my partner while he is deploying his parachute, right as we leave the airplane.
I need to hold on during the opening forces. As everything goes quiet and we are now both flying around under his parachute.
After a few minutes, I grew tired of holding on so I let go and go back into freefall, wait a few seconds and then deploy my own parachute to land safely.
I made several of jumps like this with my friend Mike Maguire a.k.a., Maddog.
