The Lincoln Sport Parachute Club is full of characters. Jerry Eddens sets records for the amount of  jumps in a 10-hour day. Lee Baney, an 82-year-old retired postal worker, jumps out of airplanes for fun. Lori Bausch started jumping to honor a friend who she lost to The War in Iraq. They leave their personal lives at home when they show up each weekend at a small field in Weeping Water, Nebraska each weekend to do what they love, which is skydiving. The field has a clubhouse, a hangar, a dirt airstrip and an airplane, which they leap from.
