Big Kudos to the instructor/saviour.

Our brains are too small at the moment to comprehend the reality of what's happening in our forests . We're only just waking up so to speak . The big problem is we think we know everything, we are specks of dust on a timeline and we know nothing .

Who let this dude on the plane?

I've had a couple of seizures in some bad places but this would have to be the baddest of them all.

I believe he had GPs o.k.
12 others in the back of that plane ready to skydive ....surely they didn't go ?

udo how would they have known? once they left the plane the other dudes would have had no idea what was going on !Pretty good work by the instructor to dump the guy out but the student rig he was wearing would of been fitted with an AAD (automatic opening device)not that you should rely on them!
