From inside the book:
Danger in the Extreme
At five thousand feet, a safe skydiving altitude, Frank and Joe got ready to jump. Joe opened the door and looked out. "This is a pretty intense way to drop in for a visit," he said.
Frank laughed as he pulled down his goggles. "See you on the ground," he said, and jumped out into the wind.
Seconds later Joe followed. The wind grabbed him momentarily as he cleared the plane, then he was falling free and clear. He enjoyed the view as he counted off the seconds. Then he pulled his rip cord.
From experience, Joe expected the chute to jerk him up as it opened and caught air. He felt a slight tug, that was all. He heard a ripping sound and looked up. His heart caught in his throat.
His main chute and his reserve had come out in one big tangled ball. The wind whipped at the knotted mass over his head. He was not slowing down.
