An excerpt from "Come Fly With Me":
"Next it was my turn to jump, I remember I had the chinstrap of my helmet tightly fastened under my chin as you were supposed to do, I could feel every gulp that one makes whilst under pressure, I really thought I may be the first one in the group to refuse to jump, but as the instructor bellowed out green light on GO, I was out and on my way down. To be honest my eyes were closed that tight I did not see my chute open, in reality when your chute opens, it bellows partially closes ending up big and beautiful above you."
