We did it! 81 way and 85
formations have been successfully completed, and row 10 wings have
been hung for the first time.
The 81 way was completed in 9 minutes and 12
seconds from the time Chris left the plane until the last legal grip
was taken on Mike. We held it for 26 seconds.
The 85 way was completed in 9 minutes and 46 seconds from the time
Chris left the plane until the last legal grip was taken on Annie.
We held it for 17 seconds.
Taking the height measurements from the canopies down the center
line and heights of those individuals the formation was about
276' tall give or take a foot or two. The formation was 175' wide since there was about a foot between each person's canopy.
According to the Sunday/Monday weigh ins (and Chris wearing 90
pounds) the people on the 85 way made it weigh 17,552 pounds.
