Eagles flocked to the center of the Earth: Cadillac Kim Knor; Nanc Gruttman, WSCR; Tim Long, SRA... Skydiving's Father JA Istel; Jim Wallace; WSCRs.

Proper pomp and circumstance- The POSPR, Nancy Gruttman, WSCR; Jim Wallace, role model; Dr. Alan Eustace, current jumper (broke Baumgartner's record) are inducted with proper pomp and circumstance:

Architectual earth beacon lit by a desert showcasing environs-patterns as eye-candy - visible from orbit or parachute.
