That joke leaves me flat.

That’s just what the previous owner said!
I think the price is negotiable because of all those scratch marks – like someone was trying to claw it open in a hurry.
A few years ago, a longtime jumper and tandem master came back to the DJ after an 18-month hiatus. He’d put on a few pounds and was going to do a jump just to blow the rust off. He left the plane, had an uneventful freefall, but couldn’t find the pilot chute to deploy the main. He landed under his reserve. A snarky Rigger opined “I bet he could have found it if it was a bag of chips!”
I have no need for a parachute in any condition. I see no reason to demonstrate that gravity works, and if not interfearred with, can be deadly.
I might add, Dimitrios, why would anyone leave a perfectly functioning plane?

plane crashes only happen on landing, so getting out prior to landing makes sense. Of course any time you fly, the only guarantee is that you will land.
Skydiving requires a level of boredom that I’ve never achieved. I see no reason to leave the ground.
I love to experience free fall!!! But no more than two feet at a time.
I’m sure I would love the free-falling. It’s the concussive stops that I object to
I don’t even like the dreams in which I am flying.
Hey, TG, back in the 1960’s when I was in the 101st Airborne, we always said there’s no such thing as a perfectly good airplane.
