Wow. I mean really, wow! Neat link.

Cuddy, didja ever see a movie from the 60's, maybe the 70's, about skydiving? It followed this gang of hip skydivers through a bunch of adventures and romance. Throughout the movie, a guy was testing a set of batwings that looked almost exactly like what these guys are using. I think the "good guy" kept telling the "loser guy" not to use it because it was too dangerous. The big finale of the movie was when the loser guy flew the suit into the ground...

pps KM I do vaguely recall this movie
The Skydivers is a 1963 film directed by Coleman Francis. It stars Kevin Casey, Eric Tomlin, Anthony Cardoza, and Marcia Knight. The film contains performances by influential Nashville guitarist Jimmy Bryant. After being forgotten for three decades it got a second life in 1994, serving the basis for a Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode.

At a tiny airfield in a small, dusty California town, husband-wife team Harry and Beth run a jump school. The husband rebukes his old girlfriend, Suzy, who hooks up with his fired mechanic Frankie to seek revenge.

Coffee is a major plot point and seems to continuously serve as a basis for dialogue. The film ends with a curiously grim credit sequence of star names and head shots, but no music.

At one point, the film was the lowest-rated of all time on the Internet Movie Database.

Time to head to Netflix!
