We received the news about the terrible accident in Jämijärvi yesterday. We feel great sadness for our dear fellow skydivers in Finland, and for the friends and families of those involved.
Eight of our brothers and sisters in the sport of skydiving, that we love so much and that gives us so much joy, have paid the highest possible price for their passion.
In difficult times we can only reach out to each other for comfort. It cannot change the tragic fact that so many people have lost their beloved friends and family members.
But dear Finnish skydiving friends, please know this: we share your sorrow and feel deeply for your loss, a loss not only for the Finnish but for the whole Nordic skydiving community.
