Skydive Arizona hosted the annual Turbine Madness Boogie from May 24th to the 27th. The event featured $21 jump tickets, tons of load organizers, boogie beer, and a DJ. In addition Arizona Sponsored teams AZ Arsenal and AZ Airspeed hosted their annual Challenge events for their respective disciplines.
Arizona Arsenal Vertical Challenge
Planned Dives for the event included complex multiple point formation jumps that required two planes. Some of these formations resembled shapes such as a yin yang, windmills, animals, and many more.
Here are some of my selects from the Vertical Challenge:
Congratulations to Brianne Thompson!
