So, these guys were never found? If they were successful base jumpers, hundreds (possibly thousands) of people would have seen them jump. If they didn't, where are they? If they were wearing backpacks on the way down, why weren't they detained at the bottom? If they weren't wearing backpacks on the way down, then where are those backpacks now? Were they discovered and removed from the scene??


Plus I am sure there are multiple private webcams and police cams, all pointing towards the Tower and inside the tower.

Hmm, maybe ghosts))

Yeah if it turns out to be tourist, how dare they do what many tourists do, and have a ruck sack? Now if it was/is a terrorist, he's the dumbest one on record, for being so obvious!

I doubt common tourists climb the Eiffel tower at 5:30 AM.

What about a BASE jumper?

Is the Eiffel Tower tall enough to base jump off? Genuine question, I have no idea!

A BASE jumper climbs any thing at any time.

It's 300 metres high, I suppose that's enough.

I have no idea, its been 20 years since I was there. IF it was open at 5:30 then it is possible. If it was not? Well then game on.

From what the articles say it opens at 9:00 AM, as they say that it was closed for 4 hours and opened at 13:00.

Then it is not really a question of why he was there, it is what he was up too. A ruck sack may not be explosives, it could also be a sniper rifle. To be honest if he was going to set explosives off, high level is not the way to go for damage OR mayhem.

Merci pour l'article !

What I find most suspicious is that 3 people would be on the Eiffel Tower at 5 AM - there are specific opening and closing hours, and I doubt that it is open at that time.

They were right to question it.



Many people jumping off(with parachutes, whatever) tall buildings were hiding before closing time to ..erm, obtain their goal - jump, and land safely.
I cannot find doc on this...they explained how it works there, you know.
They even were dressed like maintainers, tech staff, etc to get into game.
They do it just for fun/adrenaline rush, definitely NOT a terrorists...
Yup, base jumpers...seems like fun.
