I don’t care how many skydives you have.
Until you’ve stepped out the door of an airplane
into complete darkness at 1,200′ with 120 lbs
of combat equipment and 68 lbs of parachute,
YOUR STILL JUST A LEG!

I’ve seen these numbers fluctuate; in the same quote. So I’m not sure which are correct, although I’m sure they change as needed,for example when they have a working dog attached as well. the numbers may also be the result of the classic, “I caught a fish THIS big” (tall) tale. But that’s is an uneducated guess! 😉
I’ve got one (two) question(s).
Does this paratrooper have to WALK to the plane? Is he hoisted up!?
