Charlotte Skydivers 1958

2017 Update from John Bamburg

In 1959, a group that called themselves The Charlotte Skydivers organized and began sport and exhibition jumping when the game was almost brand new.
Some of the original members were Sonny Yates​, Gene Goforth, Louie Bamburg, Ray Lefler and others.
Just saw where Ray Lefler passed away last week. He may have been the last of those original Charlotte Skydivers to exist. 
Blue Skies Forever Sir. 
You boys gave us what we love so much today.
