[i]The Leslies are avid skydivers - Kathy has about 2,400 jumps under her belt and her husband, Fred, has 5,600 - and wanted to do something special to commemorate the Discovery launch. They jumped from an aircraft over Deland, Fla., and timed it so they could get a photograph with Discovery taking off in the background.
The jump had a special meaning to Fred, who is a former astronaut and works for NASA. He wanted a picture of himself wearing the flight suit he wore on a 1995 mission aboard Space Shuttle Columbia.[/i]
