Out of curiosity what are full rig parachutes worth? I found a1975 or 76) post Vietnam era one and gave no clue on prices
Good question. First, I shopped around for years and all that was available were ones with the suspension lines cut, and no harnesses. Manufacture states they have a 10-12 year life. When I saw this I was taking a chance thinking it was in some way cut or " demilled", it was not. I have seen T10 reserves packed in the box for $175-$250....so I was pleased to have paid $180 for a complete MC1-B...I have my old 70's jump helmet, Alice pack and BDUs in hand for the dummy paratrooper...the trick now is to be able to suspend it inflated from the 90 ft tall hangar hoist....I figure from Apex to dummy boots will be about 40 ft.

Sounds like a cool idea. A buddy has a chute hung in his hangar. I have some WWII chutes but can't risk the potential damage displaying one in mine... unless someone wants to add climate control for me. I guess "softer" has reached the military as well? Are drill sgts allowed to curse anymore?

Can any others jumpers help unfog my mind as I remember the " dial of death" harness, I remember using it but can not find any info when it was phased out.

that's gonna make one hell of a display, though it sounds like quite an undertaking to set up
