First ever skydiving baton pass: Abbotsford 1958

Many members are aware of the Abbotsford baton pass which is commemorated above the membership picture case in the lounge, and was from one wing walker to another

Most probably don’t know that in 1958 Abbotsford was also the site for the first ever in North America baton pass from one free falling sky diver to another – see press clipping.

1958 was when the sky diving championships were held here.
