    The parachute is hurting the aircraft tail section...

    the guy cuts off his main chute and deploys his reserve.

    His deployment "chute" [ripcord of sorts] got knocked loose.

    The final shot taken from the other jumper as he looked up at the Twin Otter reminded me of my skydiving days.
