    13/09/2004 Bogota, Colombia 30 500 ?/? 54 #1250745
    Description: This jumper was performing a demo into a school in Bogota with a field elevation of 2640 meters (8660 feet) but the jumper was only used to jumping at sea level. It appears he made an aggressive turn that didn't quite get him to the ground and he made another 90 degree trun impacting the ground down-wind.
    Lessons:Parachutes perform differently at higher altitudes. You should be fully aware of your capabilities and those of your parachutes when attempting something new or stressfull such as a demo. High performance landings at demos are also not advisable.
