It’s been a year since a true skydiving pioneer passed away. He was a man who pushed the boundaries of the sport, yet remained obscure to the general public.
His innovation of the “buddy system” skydiving method, creation of the 35mm helmet-mounted camera and skydiving videography helped to revolutionize the sport. He probably single-handedly introduced skydiving to millions of people.
In the early 1960s, Mr. Sinclair’s worked on scores of television shows, commercials, and motion pictures, along with taking the reigning king of late-night TV, Johnny Carson, on a skydive in 1968.
It would be remiss not to mark his passing without sharing a few blogs and articles about this remarkable man.
Below are links to some of the best written memories of Mr. Sinclair.
