Trivia

The low altitude reserve parachute deployment was achieved using an AAD (Automatic Activation Device - Called an AOD, Automatic Opening Device at the time). It took a number of attempts to get the desired effect, the parachute deploying too high on several occasions, and deploying too low on others. A dummy was used for the drops. See more »

Great short that inspired Fandango
18 August 2002 | by tlougherySee all my reviews

If you liked the Skydiving scene in Fandango then you will love this short film. It is the same scene and almost the exact same dialogue, except that it was made by real skydivers a few years before Fandango was produced. The character names are the same and you can clearly see that they took this film and created Fandango around it.

The airstrip is the same(Perris Vally), the aircraft and Pilot are the same as in Fandango (the is wearing a blond wig).

If you can get your hands on a copy of this classic film hold on to it. If you are a skydiver then you would love it.
