Priests with the Russian Airborne Troops will take a crash course next week to operate the world’s only paradrop Orthodox Christian church, the military said.

 

The one-week course for the priests, many of whom are experienced paratroopers with more than 500 jumps, will take place at an airborne troops facility in Ryazan region in central Russia, a Defense Ministry spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

This brings up all kinds of strange mental images. How do you pour the wine in free-fall?

I suspect this is a rope dope drop, not a free fall. That would be spectacular though! :)

Nothing funnier than a heavy equipment drop that goes wrong.:D

I always found that rather than counting "one thousand, two thousand, three thousand, four thousand" a good hearty scream lasted the same amount of time. Then I would check my canopy and proceed to the ground

In a dignified fashion.
