Caught pilot looking down for a landing spot. I remain amazed at the attitudes these seasoned skydivers can assume as they handle these chutes as if they were a fixed-wing aircraft. They seem to defy gravity when in these radical turns. The pilot seems complacent, but the tandem passenger appears to be either praying or about ready to soil his pants on this nearly upside-down sweeping turn. I cropped in a PiP to show closeup of faces. It's beyond me how these pilots know exactly when (or when not to) they can execute this radical turn without the parachute collapsing midair.
