Owen Quinn: Twin Towers
April 17, 2008
On July 22, 1975 Owen Quinn made history publicizing the
plight of the unemployed.
Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, Rick McGonigal, a
jumper from Mays Landing, NJ who once jumped at my DZ in Woodbine, NJ sent
some photos of us at the DZ both in the plane and after a jump.
In the batch of photos was this one of Owen Quinn
BASE jumping from the South Tower of the World Trade Center.
In 1975, Mike Sergio,
took this photo of Owen Quinn making the first jump from the top of
unfinished South Tower of World Trade Center.
