MIssion 9 – Jim Wilson ImagesPosted: October 26, 2011
Jim is a friend of Mark, AF6IM. He is a Captain in the Royal Canadian Air Force and serves as a navigator/radio operator on C 130 rescue aircraft. Jim holds the Canadian record for the most jumps in a 24-hour period, 200 jumps in a bit over 12 hours. He is a rigger and skydiving instructor whose hobby is collecting, restoring and jumping classic and antique parachutes.
He has a cool setup for his helmet cam which uses a bite switch for triggering the shutter. This keeps his hands free for maneuvering his chute. I’ll get a gallery going later. But here is an image to get you excited about other images Jim took on Parachute Mobile mission 9.
