If this list is complete, then about 42 German and Austro-Hungarian airman used parachutes after they started to be issued in about April 1918. But Rumey was killed when the parachute malfunctioned as the site says; Lowenhardt was killed which it doesn't say, so probably there were others less famous whom I don't know about that were killed, which makes the total number of survivors even smaller.
Does anyone know about any of the others?
