Vermont news letter (2 weeks ago)
Just weeks after being found from being lost in the Vermont woods for 2 weeks and just 1 week after parachuting with a dislocated shoulder amateur parachutist Vin Dare jumped to safety during the Rutland County R/C Flyers Air Show on Saturday, July 14th.

During the noontime show, Vin performed a crowd-pleasing jump, landing safely in the middle of the runway, directly in front of the spectators!

What the crowd didn't know at the time was that the airplane Vin just jumped from was in real trouble. There was apparently a failure in one of the ailerons. The pilot was able to get the plane to the far end of the field where it was out of view of most of the spectators before it crashed into a tree. Although the plane suffered substantial damage, it was generally felt that it was repairable. Vin shall jump again!

Vermont news letter (3 weeks ago)
the now famous amateur parachutist Vin Dare was found to have a dislocated shoulder after his 2nd parachute jump, this jump took place just 1 week after searchers found Vin hanging from a tree, lost in the Vt woods for 2 week, when Vin was asked about his arm after his 2nd jump he was reported to say ""just a couple more self-tapping screws and a couple servo adjustments and I will be jumpng again""
