XRW in the dark

This photo is a bit cryptic, but when you are flying a tiny little high performance canopy right along a really-damn-big wingsuit, in the dark, a few thousand feet above a bunch of thorny, prickly things, your attention might not be completely on the camera work.

First Night XRW Dock

Nik Daniel (canopy pilot) and Alex Swindle (wingsuiter) completed the first night-dock XRW (to the best of our knowledge) on the night of January 11th, in the dark skies above Skydive Arizona in Eloy, AZ:

I know this is not much to look at, but Alex and I just completed the first XRW dock at night (well at least that I know of).  Katie Hansen was trying to shoot outside photos, but unfortunately they did not turn out quite as we hoped. We will be doing this again in early February with better lighting.

We are excited to see the next attempt, should be great. Watch the local news for UFO reports the following morning!
