Oh, no, I got a morbid fascination on how these guys bought the farm :D I've parachuted a couple times, static line jumps from 3000ft. I fixed a motorcycle for a guy once and he told me he had been an Air Force fighter jet trainer. He was trying to put together a program to help disadvantaged kids with flying restored MIG fighters from the Korean War era. i don't think he ever got a good enough sponsor to do that. His name is Pete "Robbie" Robinson.
He was also an aerobatic pilot and I jumped at the chance to fly with him. He rented a Great Lakes biplane trainer and would take people along for his practice rides. He liked that because it was cheaper to split the cost. We flew out of a little grass runway airport across the Delaware from Lambertville. It was called Van Zant Airport. So I can say I've flown upside down in an open cockpit biplane, we also did loops, snap rolls, it was a great time. I never knew the g's you pull in a loop, what an experience. I came out airsick every time but never puked. I went with the guy once from that airport to a private airstrip in south Jersey , we flew a Bellanca Decathalon. He was a cowboy, you had to drop in over power lines and he came in fast and had some trouble stopping in time. I remember seeing a big red barn coming up on us fast! He had gone to the guy's place to look at a Pitts.
That was 18 years ago, I always wanted to do that again but look how much time has passed.

Another one to add to the list...they're still investigating the incident.
"A 24-year-old University of Utah student was killed Tuesday afternoon following a failed BASE jump from a cliff in Rock Canyon."
