Throwback Thursday: two for one

Throwback Thursday brings you back to the early 70’s this time around – to good ‘ole Zephyrhills, FL.


This photo shows husband and wife Cheryl and Rob Brown, sporting matching jumpsuits. In this photo Cheryl is sporting a Buchman rig with a Sierra and a Starlight, which she fondly remembers as nearly killing her each opening. Cheryl is now more commonly found behind the lens than in front and is a steady fixture near the pond in Z-Hills, specializing in sports/action photography – click here to visit Impromptu Photography.

If you have an old skydiving photo that you would like to share, we would love to see it! Please send the photo along with a short note describing who/when/where/what (as you can remember) to us via email.


  • Cheryl and I both had Starlights in the Buchman rigs. And yes, they would hammer you on every opening. She replaced hers with a Sierra and I bought a Strato Star.
    Starlights were terrible on opening but once open it had the most forward drive of any round I ever flew.
