T-Mobile Demo over San Francisco

Team ILL VISION organizes 15-way wingsuit formation over San Fransisco August 5, 2009.
Sorry to keep this short. Leaving in four hours to Switzerland with the team.
On a hot tip, Team ILL Vision got the chance of a lifetime to work with Skydiving Innovations who organized the show for "T-Mobile."
The big city demonstration jump brought attention to the launch of the T Mobile's myTouch 3G phone, The colorful show featured 100 skydivers. Three groups formed a "T" in free fall including the 15-way wingsuit formation. I believe it is the largest skydiving demo in US History.
Raise the Sky, Fog Head Stuidos, Flock "U"niversity, Craig O'Brien Photography and others including David Major of Ace Aerial Cinematography participated in the event.
Four Landing areas ranged from a huge field near the famous Golden Gate Bridge, a baseball field and very tight PRO Rated landing areas within the skyscrapers.
