There were a lot of firsts with Mission 28 but our jumpers and ground crew took the challenge and what it success it was. For starters, we were at a new Drop Zone. A big thanks to Skydive California for hosting our us. We were able to proved live video on three out of the for jumps, however, there was some technical issues on jump 3. The biggest success for the crew was our HF jump. We will be going through the log soon but sounds like there was a Florida contact! Thank you all who participated. Be patient, we’ll got the QSL cards out soon. Please be sure to email Rob at email@example.com if you made a contact.
Mission 28 is scheduled to take place August 26, 2017. Make a contact with a skydiver and receive a one of a kind QSL card.
