    This was me (on the left), July 1981 at Elsinore Para Center.

    The DC3 in the back was a newly acquired "drug runner" seized by the DEA and bought by the jump center at auction.

    My gear..... US Army surplus "T-10" chute with reserve.

    One thing rookie skydivers learn about DC-3's..................

    They blow a lot of oil out of the exhausts. Your jumpsuit soon begins to look like a auto mechanics work suit!
