Die VIII Weltmeisterschaften Im Fallschirmsportspringen, or the 8th World Parachute Jumping Championships were held in Leipzig, Germany in 1966. First of all, isn't German an overwhelmingly awesome language? Just keep stringing syllables together! Second of all, I don't understand the concept of a parachute competition. Do you see who can freefall the longest and survive? Do you somehow go for accuracy? Third of all, how hilarious is it that all these guys were leaping out of planes in Leipzig? Perhaps i am easily amused. I love the juxtaposition here of the old biplane with the relatively modern gear our intrepid skydiver is wearing. You'll love this retro airplane t-shirt. Or if you'd rather have the jumper all by himself, we offer Freefaller .
