Continued from my last post.
So the plane took off. It circled around over the hills and rose. Minutes after, another plane rose and did the same thing. And then another.
And then they began dropping people. Here’s a slideshow of a few pictures I shot, including some I really shouldn’t have.
We spent a considerable time just gaping. Why in the heck would planes take off with an Immortal and her entourage and then, once they were high in the sky and safely away, start offloading people on parachutes?
It took us several minutes to realize what it was about. As you can see in the slideshow, I even took pictures with my not-so-great telephoto lens of one chutist touching down pretty close to us.
Yes, we were that stupid!
It wasn’t until that guy almost touched down that we figured it out: We’d been spotted. (Continued in my next post.)– Flyss
