  • Description

    Everard Calthrop parachutists - drop from Tower Bridge - (Part 1). London.

    Stunts. Parachutists jumping from the very tall Tower Bridge in London. Parachute falling toward water -- not exactly floating but I guess it slows the fall a bit. This was a test (by the military?) of the parachute's performance at low altitudes. Since they were not really sure of the result; it was sort of a daredevil act. A few people below and a boat; Man wearing a rolled wool cap step s toward camera. location London; England
