John Fleming, known as “Blind John” among skydivers, jumped out of a perfectly good airplane over 1900 times. More than 1200 of those jumps were made after he lost his sight — he was the first known skydiver to develop a method of jumping solo while blind.

Sadly, John died of cancer in 2016. Now, we are on a mission to tell his story in a full-length documentary.
