Exiting at their absolute minimum jump altitude of 2,000 feet, the videographer of the U.S. Army's Golden Knights Parachute Team has his pilot chute in hand so the main chute opens immediately. A second jumper can be seen in the frame also.

Wow! Now I see why 2000 is as low as they say. Look at the other guy, how much he appears to have fallen and the main is not even fully streached out yet let alone begin to open.

Well framed, and split second timing... another 1/2 second later and it wouldn't have been a great shot !
