I bought my first parachute from Ted Strong when I lived in Boston. A modified military 7-TU. that I picked up from his loft south of Boston in what I think was an X – military base/ warehouse. I still have a rig that I bought from him.
No details of the accident will ever be available for obvious reasons. At 75 years old, he was still going strong. The skydiving world will really miss him. He was always a great guy.
