Update on television program by John Shelton
Thank all of you for your suggestions and stories. I settled on proposing the Bob Korves-related tale of the contest pilot who landed out above the clouds because it would give me the opportunity to show 15 minutes of kick-ass aerials at the beginning before people changed to the ALL NASCAR CHANNEL...

Redundant canopy latching by John

Parachute repack date revisited by Bill Daniels
This thought popped into my mind today. Lets say an occasion arises requiring the use of your out-of-date parachute. You leap clear of your damaged glider and pull the ripcord and, as we all expect, the 'chute works perfectly. Through dumb luck and many yanks on the risers, you manage to land on...
