okay, i have to preface these photos with the fact that i have never jumped a mountain bike before. infact, i am on this forum more than i ever get to ride i think this jump is about 15-18 feet. sorry it is hard to really see the jump and stuff, maybe another time i can get better pics. these were taken off of video...so i have a clip of the actual crash! not sure how i can show you guys video...

these were the successful subsequent jumps:
