On Thursday, 14 November I returned to the sky. It was my 39th jump, but it was my first since May of 1975. And it was my first tandem jump. I jumped with El Paso Skydive at the Santa Teresa Airport in southern New Mexico.
The plane was a King Air A-90K
It was equipped with seatbelts for 6 or 8 people, but no seats (except for pilot and copilot, of course)
I still have my jumpsuit from 1975, and over it went the harness with which I would be strapped to my instructor.
