35 knot wind? I thought the limit was 13 knots.
15 knots ISTR.
I was later told that a senior officer had brought his lady friend to see some parachuting and so it went ahead, despite the wind 'gusting'. I was in the first of several simultaneous sticks of 5, someone else in that stick broke their arm/collar bone and further parachuting was then scrubbed. I don't know how much of that is correct, I was in La La Land or CMH.
Milling is preparation for the abuse that follows.
