Agas-Agas Bridge: Speed paragliding
Just as we were about to call it a day at Agas-Agas Bridge, Buko suddenly came to where we were posted and announced he was going to jump. It was like 5:15PM and light was fading fast so without much ado and fanfare, he opened his chute assisted by Jason and friends, and, well… jumped!
It was funny, at the same time frustrating, for me because seconds after he leaped, he vanished from my field of view and plummeted 75 meters down the cliff! All I managed to grab was the top of his chute!!! I couldn’t take a photo of him soaring! 😦
And since he was on a “speed paraglide,” he hit the ground in a matter of seconds!
Sorry, no Take 2.
Here are the photos (no, am not happy with them at all)…
