BKPC. 4th November 2017, Jump 275, my first parachute malfunction. Brake fire followed by line twists, and no I didn’t unstow the toggles :/.
I deployed the reserve on my back and the harness caught me in the face on opening pushing the goggles into my face, it’s not as bad as it looks :).
The clip on my GoPro was broken and created a poor seal on the housing allowing in moisture when I passed through the cloud. Although the malfunction is a little misty, it clears in time to see me select my landing area.
What do you think? let me know in the comments below:
- Although my main parachute malfunctions, my reserve worked perfectly, does this reassure you?
