    I'm hoping someone has information about a demonstration accident at Fort Benning on July 3, 1985?

    Please PM me if anyone has any information on that.

    If your 'circa' timeline stretches into 1986, I might be able to help you. I remember several accidents that year, but nothing that happened specifically on a demonstration jump.

    This is off topic. I do remember an accident. I got to Benning for ANCOC in Aug 86. I took my rig with me because I was going to do some jumping and was disapponted to find out there was no sport parachute club on post. I was told that they disbanded after an accident the year before. That's pretty much all I know.

    Have you contacted the Ft Benning PAO?
