|Leaving, not nervous at all.. no no|
When we arrived we first went trough the competition details, this was a new thing for them too.

Then we had a quick training on what to do, not that much as we more or less just hang from TheRealJumpper.
- Bend feet backwards under the plane
- Hand to the harness straps
- When instruction gives a sign, spread hands
|Up there, I'm I nuts or what ? :)|
Then we changed clothes and put on the tandem-jump harness.
|I have my harness on, ready to go!|
One of the video guys took the Lumia 900 and made a ad-hoc harness for it. It worked, luckily the phone didn't drop off it. The video is great, unfortunately none of us noticed that it was placed in "height-screen" mode, so the video is recorded upside down in portrait mode :) I'll post it here as soon as I get it rotated.

After that I emptied my pockets and left all my stuff at their office. We walked over to the airfield to wait for the plane to land and pick us up.

The climb took about 5-6 minutes I think, then we where up at about 4100m I think.

First out was a real jumper woman. Then it was our turn. At about this point, having my feet dangling outside the plane and I started to get really nervous and slightly scared. Not that I had much time to think about it, as the next second we where out!
|Stepping out. About 4000 meters down. Turku airport ^|
|And here we go!|
|And safely on the ground.|
