Skydive Aruba!

My wife and I were walking on the beach this Sunday morning. Overhead came the sound of a small aircraft. I watched him circling upward until he was almost out of sight. Lo and behold, out jumped a couple of parachutists. Yes, this is Skydive Aruba. Here’s a short video of what I saw.

I was impressed with the amount of control each of the jumpers had in the gusty winds. They both seemed to almost hover over the landing zone, then dropped in. I’ll wager that takes a bit of practice. At any rate, just another fun thing to do on the island. However, I’ll stick with the plane.

Bon dia.

  1. Cool. My buddy started that drop zone last year and they’re doing really well.
    Wish I were there!
