Rocky Mountain Adventure Quest, a nonprofit company, recently filmed a half hour educational adventure focusing on skydiving for a show called, “Hittin’ the Road” which airs on Rocky Mountain PBS. Skydiving Museum & Hall of Fame Board of Trustees President/CEO, James F. Curtis III, had the opportunity to speak with the show’s producer and share information about our museum.

The episode includes an interview with Kim Emmons Knor who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013. You will see Kim is wearing her Hall of Fame blazer and also shared her Hall of Fame plaque.

PBS says they have gotten more hits on this episode than any others so far.

    Hope the new Skydive Experience Interactive Museum in North Orlando, Florida, open in 2018, include final lessons on parachuting/skydiving safety delivered by the audacious and brave Ripcord men, the handsome, headstrong, youthful and colorful parachute fellow Ted McKeever (the late Larry Pennell) and his inseparable level-headed older mentor and partner Jim Buckley (the also late Ken Curtis), at the end of every exciting episode of the most awesome skydiving adventure series and the most danger-packed show on television of the early 1960s ever made by far of its namesake, Ripcord, in the interactive way.

    On September 28, 2021, Ripcord (first-run syndicated: 1961-1963), the most awesome skydiving adventure series and the most danger-packed show on television ever made by far, will celebrate sixty years of its first telecast on the small screen and for this commemorative date, I wish for a diamond anniversary bash celebration at the Skydiving Museum & Hall of Fame and the new Skydive Experience Interactive Museum in North Orlando, Florida, presenting the complete history of TV’s Ripcord, all the best of its exciting episodes and most of all, what we really learned about parachuting/skydiving safety with the audacious and brave Ripcord men, the handsome, headstrong, youthful and colorful Ted McKeever (the late Larry Pennell) and his inseparable level-headed older mentor and partner Jim Buckley (the also late Ken Curtis), at the end of every episode.
