    This line will definetly be etched in my mind along with the other 3 most dangerous words you'll hear in the cockpit:
    "What does this button do?"
    "What's it doing now?"
    And my personal favourite:
    "Check THIS out!!!"

    It's pretty premature to talk like that not knowing anything about the particular operation, but it's pretty sad that everyone hears this about dropzones and thinks "yeah, sounds about right".

    This looks like what would happen if Mr. Mustache of the "sloppy ILS" and "VFR into Yosemite" threads was also a jump pilot.

    Hopefully, they will only hurt themselves.

    1:08 he horizontal stabilizer is still attached and looks like the elevator is deflected up. Right?

    Freakin D-bags hooting and hollering THEN casually wondering if the pilot got out.
    I wouldn't urinate in their mouth if their teeth where on fire.

    They pulled the chutes pretty high, plane probably landed before they did.

    Having been in a situation where I nearly died in an airplane, that moment afterward when you realize what happened and that you lived, the adrenaline high doesn't allow for a whole lot of clarity of thought.

    I thought the same thing, if I had bailed out of an airplane that was coming apart and lived to tell about it I figured I'd be pretty amped up as well.
