Mock Up Tower
The 34-foot mock up tower (connected to a steel cable to lower the men to the ground) had
all the elements of the real thing except the propblast -- the "Go!", the drop, the jerk, and the
following sense of relief. Not knowing what the real thing amounted to, many used to concen-
trate on form rather than just getting out. But that was still to be learned.
