Stacking in the Sky

STACKING IN THE SKY – Video
StackVideo
A mid-air collision between parachutists used to be the stuff of nightmares. Yet with the invention of square canopies it has become a sport in itself albeit a very gentle and precise one -as parachutists carefully link themselves in ‘stacks’.

Building large stacks of parachutists in the sky is a specialty of the Royal Marines parachute team as, over a six year period, they broke and rebroke their own world records. But there is always the risk of the team getting tangled in each other’s canopies – as seen in

Stacking in the Sky.Adventure cameraman Leo Dickinson and his wife Mandy -with almost 5,000 jumps between them -develop new methods of filming to capture the true excitement of this spectacular sport as the Marines put together stacks of 22, 23 and then 24 parachutists – which remains the World Record.
