Quotes

Ted McKeever: (Alternate narration heard at the beginning of some episodes) This is the most danger packed show on television. Every jump, every aerial maneuver is real. Photographed just as it happened, without tricks or illusion. All that stands between the jumper and death is his ripcord.

My inspiration
13 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was one the many, many young people who watched Rip Cord and was inspired by the story line, and more importantly, the sky diving. The sky diving scenes were wonderfully done, and made the sport look very exciting. At 21, I decided to try it out....especially terrifying given that I had a fear of heights, but I also wanted to prove to myself that I could do it! So, I did. And, to this day (42 years later) I can still remember the sights, sounds, smells and sensations of jumping out of an airplane. I also became involved in flying, and met two of my very best friends at "the field." I look back on that period of my life with great fondness, and have Rip Cord to thank for those memories.
