Falling from the sky
St. Thomas, ON, June 2007 [Click to embiggen]
This remains one of my most memorable moments from our grand adventure at the St. Thomas Air Show last summer (see here, here, here, here and here for earlier entries.) As I lay on the ground and shot straight up, all I could think of was what must have been going through this guy's head as he spun crazily toward the planet.
Of course, there was nothing crazy about it. The SkyHawks are the parachute demonstration team of the Canadian Armed Forces. They're probably as well trained in falling from the sky as anyone on - or off - the planet. It was an incredible sight to see.
Your turn: What makes someone "the best"?
