Now, that would be COOL!!!!!
Well, when I served in the army (Paratrooper) we had a black lab called Babbis... We had modified an auxiliary para (T10) and let him go of the tower numerous times... :D
Not only he was not scared but whenever he saw us "jumping" he wanted to come with us... :wink:

Hey Panos that looks like fun. I may be old but made my first parachute jump last year at 70. I jumped within a week of my son's first jump. He is an Army paratrooper currently stationed at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina.

I did a 14,000 foot jump with a 5,000 foot freefall using a sport parachute. While I didn't manage a stand up landing I didn't do bad and skidded in on my feet and rear. I did this jump in the beautiful country surrounding Zion's National Park in southern Utah. It was freezing during the freefall but was beautiful once I pulled the rip cord and the chute opened.

Training yes, oxygen no. I wasn't real keen on the free fall part of the jump and the photographer that captured it shows just how contorted your face gets at 120 MPH. Once the chute opened it was pure pleasure from there on down
