Style and Accuracy Bits - Thursday 29 June
During practice and at the start of competition for style and
accuracy, as each jumper exited we could watch a little puff of
dust blow off during exit. This was from the extremely dusty
conditions in the accuracy packing area. More carpeting has been
supplied to the packing area and the dust clouds are diminished
Style and accuracy competitors ride a bus from the target area
to the aircraft loading area. The ride takes only a few minutes.
Style competitors also get a longer bus ride back from the golf
course where they land. All of the style and accuracy competition
has been run from Casa aircraft using an exit from the left door
rather than the tailgate.
[ed: Cheryl, when I said we wanted dirt, I didn't mean exit
dust! ;-) ]
