Well, a few of us at Cosmos have gone and walked the empty mile.
Yep, we have turned in our Whuffo apprehensions and are now budding skydivers.
I understand it has little to do with the industry, or glass in general, but it does illustrate just how close we are. You don't jump out of a plane with just anybody, you know. And gosh darnit we're proud of ourselves. Feel free to watch the video of Dave B and I jumping from 4000'. Our third jumper went tandem from 13,000' - now that's just crazy.
We're trying to convince the powers-that-be to provide airdrops when doing urgent after-hours service calls, but it doesn't look promising.
Anyone in for the next hop?
We went and did it again. One new jumper and two re-plummets. Now 40% of the Cosmos family has been chucked bodily from planes-in-flight only to while and wend our way back to Terra under diaphenous canopies built by the lowest bidder. I've partaken of the silent step 3 times now.
So ... who's coming next time? You know you want to.
