A very sad incident, died whilst as a passenger for his best mate/best man who was doing his Military Tandem course. Both RAF PJIs - very sad indeed.

Either way I don`t bite much 8)

Should have posted this a while ago - Mark was an RAF Sgt PJI. A second year on the RAF Falcons Parachute Display team who had been parachuting since 2000. Hehad been a PTI in the RAF for some years, since 1992 and his family had a strong tradition within the PJI fraternity. Previous tour at th Brigade Parachute Sqn, so any Toms on the site may have come across him as he was piling you out of the side door or ramp as your despatcher. A good bloke and well respected by all who served with him.

His tragic accident was in El Centro California on the evening of 5 Dec 05. He was the passenger on a Tandem descent, where they took a very hard landing resulting in Mark dieing from substantial injuries 2 days later.

Mark leaves behind a wife and unborn child. My heartfelt sympathies go out to them

Per Ardua

I knew Marra too, he helped out on our Air Cadre last year. Nice fella. Some of our blokes were on the DZ when they piled in, very sad. I feel Sorry for Jim too.

The correct spelling of His first name is Marc. Marc Little is related to my Husband and I and we are Ex-Military. He was a Beautiful Soul inside and out and is missed immensely by His Wife, lovely Daughter and his family.
