I had the pleasure and panic this past weekend of jumping out of a perfectly good airplane at Start Skydiving as part of the Warrior Weekend to Remember. Thank you to Middletown resident Lonnie Kirk for a great experience and for not killing the City Manager (although I think that was only my fear… he was at ease the whole time!) It was certainly the most intense activity I’ve ever done in my life and I can understand why people get addicted to jumping.
If you missed the Ohio Challenge Hot Air Balloon Festival this weekend, you truly missed a wonderful event at Smith Park. Along with the hot air balloons, Team Fastrax did a spectacular pyrotechnic skydive on Saturday night followed by great fireworks.
Team Fastrax was featured on NBC this week. The link is below. We are lucky to have them based at YOUR airport here in Middletown.
