Remark Photographer
NX51BZ (cn 2009-1) MFR 2009. NO, this is not photoshop. Two pilots, one photographer & one crazy guy carefully planned, talked about, practiced and executed this photograph. The jumper stood like this for over 3 minutes & 3 passes over the jump zone. Good balance, a very smooth pilot & smooth air made it possible.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, the Captain has switched off the fasten seatbelt sign, but for your own safety and comfort, we advise you to remain seated with your seatbelt securely fastened" Maybe this was not what they had in mind when coming up with those words

Truly a beautiful photo! Even though you planned this, it does not matter. It gives one the sense of freedom, open air all around, a beautiful sun set, away from everything else that is happening in the World. Five stars - Wayne C.

One of the most exciting flights I've had was dumping a jumper from an Ultralight, the first time!

Man, you're amazing!! When I see something like this, I know that is your photo. Very very good!

My favourite aircraft ever since I saw it first time decades ago. I just didn't realize that you can fly it from the rear seat - does it not have CG & controlability problems without the front seat occupant?

A visitor from - posted Thu November 26, 2009:
Simply one of the most amazing aviation photos ever. Period.
Great job, Mr. Raeder!

5 Stars from Brazil!
