The initial launch and tumble to clear the plane were the worst for Ed, but he said the next thirty seconds diving 5,000ft and gaining a speed of 125mph, followed by the slower flight after the parachute had opened were awesome and beautiful.

The Skydive was fully funded by Mary Kachel in appreciation of the wonderful care given by the Yeatman to both her late husband and herself.  Grateful thanks to all who have supported her initiative which is nearing its target of raising £2,000.
