A veteran sky-diving instructor and a woman student on her second jump plummeted 10,500 feet to their deaths in a farmer's field Wednesday after taking off from Yolo County Airport near Davis. The names of the victims were being withheld several hours after the incident, as Sheriff's Department investigators and the Federal Aviation Administration tried to determine the cause of the accident. "It was a perfect day for diving," said Jane Ferrell, a free-lance writer whose husband, Ray, is co-owner of Skydance Skydiving.
