A death defying danger dog jumps out of a plane at 14,000 feet to graduate as an elite member of a search and rescue unit.  Siara is a one year old Belgian malinois, and since a few days after her birth she has been trained to cope with stressful situations in different environments both day and night.<br />
<br />
Once in the air, Siara behaves like your average dog in a car and can even be seen barking at her fellow jumpers as they pass by.  The incredible photos were taken at a Colombian Air Force base during a search-and-rescue training exercise.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
