Hold On

By skydivemike  
Taken today at The Wild Geese Skydiving Club near Garvagh Co Londonderry.

The yellow plastic item that Joeann is holding on to is all that is left of an inflatable banana that kids use in a swiming pool. The banana expolded just out the door of the aircraft.
The idea was to ride the banana in freefall. "NEXT"

Thanks for looking.

The expression on his face is priceless and in stark contrast to the woman behind him, who's loving it.

Hope that is a woman behind him, looks like one..

Superb work.
