    Those chutes are a lot different from the old T-10 I used from the early 1960.
    Main and reserve are totally redesigned.

    They don't seem to have a static line retrieval system...a tough haul on the deployment bags. The one little girl getting JM check at the nosedock would hang for a half hour under canopy, have to load her with six belts of GPMG.

    Guess that makes you want to stand in the door Gil...?
    Regards, Jim

    Curious as to why none of you seem to be wondering why the US military has an all female training course for female airborne troops because I sure am. Women are still not sent into combat in combat roles so this entire thing mystifies me. Seems a waste of resources.

    Steve,
    I think its a new female boss trying to make a fresh statementof intent. I saw a very fit, young looking U.S starred General the other day with loads of braid................could that be it. You guys would know better that side of the pond probably.
    Some of these young ladies have been at the sharpend don't forget, you can tell it in their 1000 metre stare!!
