No Shit There I Was

Got a good(?) tale of your own harrowing incident that you’d like to share? Or, did you do something that was this close to being an “incident”? Are you open to a discussion about it? Let us know – e-mail Lara at

PD New Beginning


  • Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture…Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.

  • No shit, There I was. Upside down, nothing on the clock but the maker’s name..thought I was gonna die.
    Actually all that happened was I did a two-way exit with a student I didnt know, and he was unstable from exit down to oh…1000 feet or so…could NOT get him off my right arm so I could pull.
    popped…cleared brakes and landed.
    shortest canopy ride I ever wanted to do. The student lived, too.
    CM…Bulawayo…cicra 1986 or so.
