The Turbolet had just left Czech and was due to arrive for the start of the season but had to return due to a fault with an engine - this was all know. But what we hadnít counted on was what was about to happen when the club organised an alternative plane - the Skyvan.

Packed at the club, lots of fun, lots of jumpers - you just had to keep up with the 3 lift cycles - weather has been fantastic since before easter and to top it all, the skyvan was staying for the next weekend as well - brilliant.

The skyvan has got to be the best plane to jump out of because of the tail gate. The experience adds a completely new dimension to the exit because of the visuals you get and the number of skydivers you can get out in one go - Yahoo - big ways!!

The second weekend Dave Tunks (Zygosis) load organised and we pulled off some large formation skydives including the 2 point 19 way which is believed to be a Headcorn record.

If you missed it you missed out big time, but theyíre bringing the Skyvan back to the club again later - we donít know when yet.
