The tension builds among the sky-divers as the aeroplane cuts through a cloud filled, steel blue sky.
Mentally checking through the procedure, with the final thought, has the chute been packed correctly?
Suddenly, with a whoosh of air the fuselage door is unlocked and open, revealing a panoramic view of the countryside below.
Go, go, go, then the leap into space and the air, with the exhilaration flooding through the mind as the fall begins.
The cord is pulled, the chute opens, and the slow steady falling to earth begins, falling through the clouds to the earth below.
