Quotes

[first lines of each episode]
Ted McKeever: This is skydiving, controlled flight without wings - even for experts, the most dangerous game going. This jump, like every jump you will see on this series, is made by a highly trained man who is playing the game for the highest stakes there are - his own life. He has one, and only one, safety device at his command... his parachute and its ripcord.

4 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

If it were up to me to come up with a tag line for this show, that's what it would be. I'll say more in a later post, but the computer keeps booting me out & I want to get at least something down here.Made during a very fascinating period in skydiving's development.
