A British fascination: parachute failure

Britain continues to be fascinated with parachute jump failure. Here are two examples, one new, one old:

How to survive a parachute failure“—BBC News, 2018.


Parachute use to prevent death and major trauma related to gravitational challenge: systematic review of randomised controlled trials” —British Medical Journal, 2003.

(Thanks to IanVisits for bringing the new report to our attention.)

UPDATE: We offer no comment on the responses (to this blog post) that say (in these or similar words): “Brexit is another example of British fascination with parachute jump failure.”
