horns of plenty

Sky Venture Arizona / Eloy, Arizona
These are huge exhaust ducts venting an incredibly powerful force of air moving upwards in a vertical column (think vertical wind tunnel) at the indoor skydiving center in Eloy. Indoor skydiving gives you the opportunity to experience the freedom of flight with no parachute required - which is the ONLY way I'd ever do it - though I didn't. However, it was very entertaining to watch those who did - their bodies and faces becoming contorted in midair from the powerful force of the wind which essentially simulates free fall skydiving.
