Well, I think we're finally getting to the root cause of your near disaster.
The tower wasn't the only thing rusty. You apparently jumped out of a
perfectly good airplane way too many times. Enough so that you began to
believe the propaganda that you really can fly. Then you hooked yourself up
in a harness, thinking of another kind, and got so carried away you forgot
what PLF stands for. And to make matters worse, you forgot the cardinal
rule to release your equipment bag, in this case the tower, so you don't
land on top of it and turn into a soprano. But, in this case, "ain't gonna
jump no more" has a different meaning. Please don't tell me you were
wearing your jump boots. "All the way" big fella!
