This public domain stock image by Arthur Rothstein captures an instructor explaining proper parachute operation at Meacham field, Fort Worth, Texas. The instructor can be seen in gray, while the students are dressed in white flight suits.
The white of the flight suits along with the white parachute and the strings strongly contrast with the dull colors of the base and a hazy gray-blue sky.
This photo was taken by Arthur Rothstein, who was working as an agent of the United States government. Because this image was taken by an employee of the federal government, it is in the public domain. Privacy and publicity rights may still apply.
