Burning Parachutes with Jim

In May I posted a picture on my website that got people wondering how it was done.

IMG_8391_LR_Signed

Jim Hickey visited Skydive Arizona a number of times in order to burn some parachutes.

Follow the link to view a short interview with Jim about his experience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CvV0w2IdYc&feature=youtu.be

Here is some of the compiled Video Footage – edited by Joe Jennings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQippJLNDF4&feature=youtu.be

Jim came back in early August for a second attempt – this time at night. Steve Curtis and I joined him, successfully burning three parachutes in one go. Here are a couple of screen grabs form a GoPro that was attached to my knee. Some of the footage will be incorporated in a compilation video and uploaded to the AXIS YouTube Channel very soon.
