A tragedy. It is still very sad that dispite the 'normal' person's fear whan (..........) is mentioned, that the (..........) won't open, most casualties in the sport are from the aircraft accidents occuring on the ride up or from accidents after the canopy is fully open.
Contributors to this thread may notice that I've had to edit all of the entries to remove mention of the activity which contributed to this tragedy. The reason for this is that the 'Google ads' are picking up on certain key words and thus placing adverts which are, in the circumstances, grossly inappropriate and in extremely poor taste. The site administrators have been alerted to this issue and are working to resolve it. Please do continue to add your condolences but I would be most grateful if you would avoid mention of the activity itself. Thanks.
I can't sort this out as google ads don't respond to the filters I put in place instantly - it takes a day normally. I also can't remove the ads from the whole site from where I am. I leave it with the moderator whether he removes the thread and starts it again without the words that are causing google to post ads.
Over 50 members of the Corps, past and present, squeezed into a packed church for Sue's funeral yesterday.
JW gave a truly awesome eulogy to his wife.
It showed the character that we all know him to be - strong and courageous - in what must be a terrible process of coming to terms with the tragic circumstances of such a vibrant woman passing away at such a relatively early age.
