Skydiving along the Mississippi

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- It's a beautiful day for skydiving...and what a better place to do it then along the Mississippi River.

This weekend people gather out at the Dubuque airport for the Skydive Dubuque Boogie.  Fun name for a fun event.

People got the chance to jump out of a perfectly good airplane overlooking the tri-states.

Some were first time jumpers -- others veterans.

This weekend's event was hosted by Skydive Dubuque.
The plane holds 22 jumpers, and they jump at over thirteen thousand feet.

The event runs through Sunday.

If you're not up for flying, an observation area will be open.
Organizers invite you to bring a lawn chair and come watch others jump.
