This Wednesday morning, NBC will air a short swoop segment that was shot during the Canopy Piloting Circuit (CPC) event held at Skydive Elsinore on May 15th.
Peter Alexander (Commentator) and Michael Austin (Producer) were on site with a camera crew to capture some sweet swoops. And they got 'em.
The Today Show was interested in doing a short story on swooping, because of a recent article in the L.A. Times that featured some outstanding photos from Skydive Elsinore and Perris Skydiving.
Above and beyond the competition swoops, they also captured some of the exits and the crowd's reaction when competitors ripped it up on the Elsinore pond with two extra rounds of Freestyle.
This is a great opportunity for swooping and the sport of skydiving to go mainstream and finally get the publicity it deserves.
The segment will air this Wednesday (06/01/05) morning between 7:00am - 10:00am.
Enjoy and swoop forever.
