WTS Halloween BOOgie 2013
Each year, many skydivers and non-skydivers from across the nation and international attend the West Tennessee Skydiving Halloween BOOgie event. The Midsouth's premier three-day skydiving boogie. Home of the famous Mullins King Air, designed to serve the needs of all skydivers, located on our own private airfield, away from the city where air traffic is virtually nil and nighttime festivities are without disturbance to neighbors. West Tennessee Skydiving is located at Wings Field, 40 miles east of Memphis, TN at 985 Laverne Davis Road Whiteville, Tennessee. Surrounded by the cities of Somerville, Bolivar, and LaGrange-Grand Junction. There are multiple small towns on the way to the dropzone where the speed limits are strictly encforced without mercy, so for the love of SKYGOD BE CAREFUL!

The original 550 hp PT6 turbine engines have been replaced with 750 hp PT6 turbine engines, high performance cowlings, with a capacity to take 14 jumpers to 14,000' in 7 minutes under standard conditions. This is an all age event although anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
