Davis of the Brooklands Flying School. The drop was made from a height of 1,500 feet on the occasion of the recent opening of the new Maidenhead aerodrome, which is out of the picture, as the parachutist, who has just released his 'chute, had to make allowance for the wind to carry him over the aerodrome.
