    ... sisters, and chose to fly with a separate photographer (in addition to the man who was flying with me), so he was GoProing me all the way up and down. At 12,000ft, we put oxygen masks on, and at 15,000 the plane door opened and the first tandem jumped out. After 15 seconds, one of the Canadian girls jumped, then it was my turn.
