We were awakened by the phone early one Saturday morning. It was our producer friend at Inside Edition. “Can you guys get your video production crew together and head up to Lake Elsinore to videotape some lingerie sky divers?”
Lake Elsinore is a very popular spot for sailplane and skydiving enthusiasts due to thermals in relation to nearby ridges and the topography of the area.
When we arrived, we met the seven women who had made a commitment to face fears, be bold and jump out of an airplane, wearing lingerie. And it wasn’t really a typically warm Southern California day. It was rather cool. And it was going to be even cooler “upstairs.”
As I suited up for my job as sound operator, with my sound mixer, boom pole and head phones, I was pretty glad to be bundled up.

It was a very successful day, especially as the clouds threatened rain all morning, but their mission accomplished, the lovely ladies returned to Earth with great big smiles on their faces and a bounce in their step. When I asked them how cold it was up there, they all said they hadn’t even noticed the temperature, they were so excited about their leap.
