Edited video showing the setup, inflation, ascent, and skydive from a hot air balloon from about a mile over the Independence Boogie in CSC (ChicagoLand Skydiving Center) on July 3, 2015. The video was shot using a Gopro 3 and shows the POV view of what it's like to skydive from a nearly stationary "platform" in the air. Quickly accelerate from 0 to 120 MPH in under 8 seconds while doing 2 back-flips off the basket! Then it's a soft landing right back to the drop zone (Saffire 150 canopy).
The video requires at least a DSL connection and the latest FLASH Media Plugin for best results. This video is hosted to and linked to the YOUTUBE site (you can visit them at www.youtube.com). Click on the "play" icon in the video above if it does not start automatically.
