skydiver

If your eyes had been turned skyward July 4 in the New RIver Gorge area, you might have seen Larry Lemaster skydiving, trailing a large American flag. Lemaster, who has been jumping around 16 years, left the plane at 6,000 feet, opening his parachute and unfurling the flag immediately. The photographer, Matt Kessler, works at Skydive NRG in Lansing. Skydive NRG plans to do a flag jump at Bridge Day this year, landing under the New RIver Gorge Bridge.
