USAF Type C-11 parachute canopy 1956 help...


Recommended Posts

Picked this up today and can't find much on the type c-11 canopy...is 30 ft diameter made in 1956 by Switlick..

the chute has "tail" panels below the main canopy that extend downward to the risers...came with a shipping container...which is staying in the war room...but looking to part with the canopy..

The C-11 canopy has been used in first with the USAF 50C7024-11 automatic back parachute from 1954. A major change with the previous 28' C-9 canopy. This -11 set and all the ones integrating this canopy are very scarce...
