Hi Kev,
Yes he was traveling straight at me at app 120mph. If you look at the previous shot he is straight on. I had to move around him as he shot across the sky. These jumps must be walked through on the ground many times before we go and jump. If we were to hit each other at a closing speed of 250+mph it would be all over for both of us.

Thanks for the question.

You must have to be brave to jump out of a plane but to do it wearing those pants is just plain crazy.

Mike it worries me a little when a sky diver asks how he stops when he has already jumped. I hope you didn't take a crash course to find out the answer, LOL.

Another great shot and one ,as you say, that takes great skill. Congrats on the HC.

Thanks for the feedback Mike, I had no idea he would be travelling that fast. This is an even better shot than I thought it was. Congratulations on the HC.

Another fantastic picture Mike and the stuff you have written in the commentary is also fascinating - and it's so dangerous and scary! Takes a special type. John
