Formation Skydiving attracts the largest number of competitors of any skydiving discipline. The British Open Nationals in Formation Skydiving, which take place every summer, are the second largest in the world - only the USPA's FS Nationals are bigger. Regional Grand Prix competitions in 4- and 8-way FS are held at Drop Zones around the UK during the season to bring the opportunity to compete to as many BPA Members as possible.

This shot is of Practical Magic the Northern Ireland Team going through their set moves before a competition.

Thanks as alway for your time and comments.

Jane I have put a book together for the club members with 100 shots which came in at £50 per book Which is very expensive and has a limited market.

Thanks to everyone for looking and their support.
