Imagine peering out the door of an airplane at 4,000 feet up. Now imagine stepping outside that plane, right into the wide open, blue sky…
This is what the members of the Misty Blues All Woman Skydiving Team do all the time, and they enjoy it.
Since the early 1980’s The Misty Blues All Woman Skydiving Team has been thrilling audiences at air shows, corporate events and other special occasions around the world. These exceptionally talented and brave ladies delight in displaying their parachuting talents that make them some of the most skilled skydivers in the world.
You may wonder why there are not very many skydivers around. That’s because it’s scary at first. The feeling of stepping out into the sky and being unattached to any earthly object is a wonderful thrill, but it is also completely different from all other human experiences.
Out of those few who are willing to take the plunge, only a small percentage is women. There are approximately 35,000 active skydivers in the North American continent, and only a mere 15% are women!
In a reversal of the usual statistics, the Misty Blues team is 100% women. The ladies on the team come from all across the US to demonstrate their amazing skydiving skills.
They do things in the air that make people look up into the sky and feel excitement, patriotism or the thrill of a shocking visual treat.
Watch for what may be the largest American flag you’ll ever see. One of the team members will jump with a 60-foot American flag that weighs in at amazing 45 pounds! Even if she is a petite thing, the flag jumper will always weigh well over 160 pounds when she steps out of the plane.
Not only are these women great skydivers, but they are also highly successful professionals with full-time careers ranging from an accounting consultant to a welding instructor. Although there are eight women on the team, four of them go to every show.
The ladies’ favorite part of their job is landing after an astonishing jump and walking out to meet as many fans as possible.
