Smokejumpers practice their skills

I was in Mountain Gate when I happened upon these smokejumpers practicing. Click any image to enlarge. Check out the person standing in at the door. Jump!

So, these folks jump leap from perfectly good airplanes…

…into forests of pointy trees…

…that ARE ON FIRE!!!

Godspeed, grace, and protection, Redding smokejumpers. Thank you for your service.

Jumping out of aircraft to put out fires, that’s Really Redding.
