A Cessna 185 was closely following a Cessna 182 for a maneuver called a tracking dive, in which a lead jumper is followed across the sky by the other jumpers.
The trailing plane collided with their aircraft, the wings on one plane separated and the fuselage caught fire. Four jumpers on that plane jumped to safety.
The other aircraft had five jumpers and a pilot on board and went into a steep dive. Four jumpers were able to jump immediately, but one was pinned to the outside. They eventually were able to jump and two others inside also jumped.
The pilot was able to pull out of the dive after losing a few thousand feet, then landed.
Metallica will release a 4xLP 45rpm 180-gram numbered limited vinyl edition of “Metallica Through The Never (Music From The Motion Picture)” as part of Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” event on November 29th.
The soundtrack is the companion to the 3D feature film “Metallica Through The Never” and it will be limited to only 4000 copies.
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said: “Speaking just for me, I’ve been collecting records since I was nine, and records have just been such a significant part of my life. It’s the reason I wanted to be in a band, so stepping up and helping out Record Store Day is what Metallica call a ‘no-brainer.’”
James Hetfield said: “For me, it was when my daughter wanted a turntable. I was, like, ‘Yes!’ I took her to Amoeba Records in San Francisco. She got home and played some vinyl albums on her new turntable. Then about two days later, she said, ‘Dad, there’s songs on the other side!’ Yeah, alright!”
