[JANE AND DAVEY WALK TOWARDS THE DROP

ZONE. IT’S BUSY WITH NS OFFICERS AND CSI]

DAVEY:

It’s a skydiving school: teaching, displays, corporate training, charity jumps,

competitions. They were practising for a competition when it happened.

JANE:

Who died?

DAVEY:

Rafe Phelps, Chief Instructor and co-owner.

JANE:

What can you expect jumping out of an airplane?

DAVEY:

Actually, risk’s pretty low. The road you just drove on’s more dangerous.

[JANE LOOKS SCEPTICAL]

DAVEY:

Just cos you’re scared of heights. (Anyway) Lori’s followed all the correct

procedure, she just wanted to have (you here.)

JANE:

(IN) Jumping thousands of feet with nothing but a bit of material to save

you is… madness.

[SHE CATCHES DAVEY GRINNING AT HER]

JANE:

I’m not scared of heights. I’m sensible.

DAVEY:

You? Wouldn’t go that far.
