Feeling the wind in your face can be exhilarating, but imagine feeling it as you’re jumping out of a perfectly good airplane at 6,000 feet above ground.
Roger Handrahan experiences a floating feeling every time he jumps — and he does it quite often. With 600 skydives in the past eight years, Handrahan is no stranger to jumping out of planes. He began doing so in 1968.
As part of the Habanero Skydiving Team, he will take the plunge as part of the Los Alamos County Fourth of July festivities at Overlook Park. Other team members are: Adam Buckner, Kelly Wilson and J.C. Brown.
The team originally planned to put on a show during last year’s festivities, but was unable to because the event was canceled due to the Las Conchas Fire.
