To my dismay, today I learned about an unfortunate accident that happened in Eloy, AZ.
Two skydivers passed away in an accident that should never have happened. Two skydivers collided at about 200-300 feet off the ground.
I’m not one to give morals as I know that accidents happen and sometimes you just don’t see the person, but things like this really suck to hear about…
(In CRW we aim at flying in each others’ canopies, but we don’t fly towards each other at such a low altitude in case some of you were thinking that)
I’m really saddened to hear about this, but I just wanted to point out that this is a brutal and harsh reminder of the realities of the sport… Keep your eyes peeled and ALWAYS look around you when you’re under canopy! EVEN if you’re just going straight down for a landing, you never know if someone else didn’t notice you…
Blue skies everyone, my deepest sympathies to the familes of the two skydivers.
