    Description: Bill Booth says, based on third hand reports, "From what I have heard, the TM released the drogue below 2,500 feet. The Cypress fired sometime during the snivel, but just before opening shock. (If it had fired after opening shock, the reserve bag would have stayed in the container.) The bag fell out of the container on opening shock. The jumper then cutaway (I don't know why). The reserve, because of its out of sequence deployment, baglocked itself. Nothing was entangled with the Skyhook. From what I know, I see no reason to suspect that the Skyhook was involved in any way. "
