Norm Olson’s Book Launch, Tribute and Signing
December 10, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Air Capabilities of the U.S. Navy SEALS: History of Innovation
Norm Olson, aka, “Sky Fossil”, one of our favorite local skydivers of all time, retired from jumping a few years back to enjoy his retirement at his home in Central Florida.
A founding member of the Navy Leapfrogs, Navy Seals, and all around amazing guy, Norm came back after a 23 year layoff from skydiving to re-start his fun career. He then did some 2000 jumps over a few years and finally retired from jumping at 80 years of age.
He has now written a book about his experiences and the capabilities of the Special Forces that helped helped to build
December 10 from about noon to 5pm, we will have parachute demonstrations by the Phantom Brigade, US SOCOM from MacDill AFB, presentations and talks, and of course, book sales and signing by the man himself.
It is truly an honor for Skydive City to host such an event and we hope to see everyone out here to shake the hand of a true American hero.
