      In 1971, at great risk to himself and his then bride-to-be, Istel piloted the couple on a round-the-world flight in a tiny, twin-engine plane that had hardly the oomph of a Chevrolet automobile. Before that, there was the whole business of convincing people to jump out of planes: in the 1950s, after returning home from the Korean War, where he served with the US Marines, Istel developed parachuting equipment and techniques that made it possible for the average Joe to leap out of an airplane at 2,500ft and land as if having tumbled from a 4ft bookcase.

      Soon, Americans by the thousands were enjoying the latest craze: skydiving.

          Whoa. The jumping out of planes craze just never did interest me. I prefer floating above in a hot air baloon or a glider. Now THAT is peace.

          Several of my friends have done the sky diving thingy, and prefer not to do it again. It is for those who like stressful excitement I think.
