riding the plane down is not so fun...

video


When the green light comes on... this is NOT the view you want to see =(
Sadly unable to see the dz at all... we had to ride the plane down! I havent ridden the plane down in over a year! Luckily the clouds broke up enough the rest of the day to get some good jumps in, and the sky was GORGEOUS with the clouds, I have some really cool video of the sky yesterday with these clouds, me flying around them =) when I get some more time i'll try to post that stuff tonite...

But for now... I'm off to report in to my pre-deployment training! Wish me luck!
