Okay, last post about this, I promise. Anyway, there's not a lot of talking on this, but the gist is that when I got in the plane, I started thinking, "Oh God, oh God, what am I doing?" My heart was beating so quickly that I thought I was going to pass out.
Then they make you stand on this 4" ledge while the guy you're tandem with holds on. You stare down and hold onto the straps of your harness. Then he heaves forward and you fall. I can't describe the feeling of standing in the door of the plane looking out over all that sky, knowing I was going to be falling downward. It was completely insane. Anyway, here's the video. And there are more pictures below that.
