John 'Jock' Hutton parachuted into Normandy on 5th June 1944 the day before the beach landings, it was a priviledge for the team to meet him and tandem him into the same fields that he landed in 70 years ago. The tandem was a hop & pop so was low for a tandem and although the canopy was open within a few seconds of exiting the aircraft it was still much higher than his jump in 1944 which was a 500ft static line jump at night whilst under fire. He described the tandem as 'poetry'
