Someone is having a bad day.

I think it was more the fact that he did not expect to find the 'school demo only' canopy over his head, and packed with twisted lines at that :-)

Overall you are right in saying he had a good day I suppose. :-)

Why did he throw that reserve in the first place? The main canopy was fully developed. A riser twist like that with the D-6 is not an issue, since the chute is not steerable anyway. Only by pulling those red ropes you are able to rotate it slowly, to be able to view your landing spot so you are able to brace yourself before the impact. You cannot flare either.

I had some of my army reserve training with the D-6, the chutes we used then were all well worn and full of holes after tree landings. You only patch the D-6 canopy when it has a hole so big you can walk through it, no kidding. Each new hole we used to mark by drawing a line around it with a marker, so that we could see wether the hole got bigger or not.
