Hey SakhirM4 ,in the photo on the left where you are on the ladder, what's strapped to your low back? The big square pouch? Assuming that's a parachute? Why does it sit so low and not up higher like a backpack or a civilian/recreational parachute?

The parachute is part of the seat.

The pack on my back was called a "tree lowering device". We only wore those in Southeast Asia. It was so you could get down from very tall trees in the jungle when you came down in your chute many feet off the ground. You put one end around your chute webbing, then lowered yourself to the ground. I think it was good for about 100 feet, but don't remember.

Did you see the later model laFerrari that went up 20 minutes earlier, reached 6 million but didn't cover the reserve and didn't sell?

Didn't see that one. Caught the last 30 minutes of the Auction. Man, would have been nice to see that one.
