Unbelievable story today – A woman saw Chris callihans grob 109 canopy fall to ground and hit a river and she dragged it to the shore and was not broken!!!!!. She eventually made contact with chris and he went out but it was washed down stream in floods and no longer on bank HE spend 1/2 day searching and as he gave up he saw a flash in distance on an island so he swam out and found his now broken canopy but he has a frame.
Similarly the AAFC 109A in SA was found by Bailey Roberts searching in his G109A
What a story with Chris
