Well if you've ever had the thought that you might want to actually jump out of a serviceable aircraft for kicks then this is a great location to do it?

This was the Xmas present from my wife Natalie and we finally got around to doing this on Saturday 16th Feb. What a blast!!!

Nat also came along and did the jump but unfortunately had what they term a "Reserve Ride" meaning that here Pilot didn't like the look of the chute in that it was twisted up a little at the back left hand side - so he jettisoned that and went for the reserve. Needless to say this made it a bit hairier for Nat, but she was happy with the gentle touch down on the beach.

My pilot Glenn and I were last out so we had a clear view of what was going on and we ended up being the spotters for where the first gear floated down in behind a couple of houses near the Train Station.

So while I'm admiring the view, Glenn's keeping an eye on proceedings?
