2007-12-14 15:38:26   I saw the preview for the Mythbusters episode and recognized from the brief glimpse I saw the PAC750XL as an aircraft I saw just recently at KEDU being repaired. I thought to myself, I wonder if Mythbusters filmed their skydiving episode around here? I missed the episode because I was on a date. I'm going to have to, ahem, find it somewhere.... —AndrewLeonard
