    France.

    A parachuter falling on earth - low angle shot - quite unusual. Several shots of the parachuters falling. A group of parachuters entering plane. Plane in flight, parachuter standing on the wing. Parachute opens and parachuter starts floating through the air - slow motion, interesting. More shots of the parachuters jumping out of plane and parachutes opening - slow motion.
