The owner of Skydive Iowa says a 56-year-old man who fell to his death Friday had planned only to observe the flight, not jump. Company owner Bruce Kennedy said that Wayne Kidrowski's parachute deployed prematurely during takeoff and he was pulled from the plane. Kennedy says everyone on Skydive Iowa flights wears a parachute. Kidrowski, a Brooklyn native, had previously flown on more than 10 observation flights. Kidrowski died after the plane took off from Brooklyn Friday evening. Authorities from the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
