not good, not good... however there was an accident a while ago, where during a tandem the chutes failed and the instructor basically used the tandem jumper to break his fall... she died of massive internal injuries and he broke his pelvis... so not even tandem is safe!!

i think it will go either one of 2 ways with me 1) no issues, they wont be able to stop me jumping. or 2) ill pack it as soon as the plane starts to taxi and they will have to push me out.
