Arizona skydiver burns chute to show why spare is needed (VIDEO)
The parachute goes up in flames and burns up totally within a matter of seconds.
Brianne Thompson, of the AXIS Flight School, used a flare gun to set her parachute on fire in midair, the video published on the school’s YouTube channel showed.
The video should probably also go with a warning not to try this at home. Thompson is a professional skydiver regularly competing at a national level and with two medals from the World Skydiving Championships under her belt.
