Had to return to offer praise. I finally got to see the video last night of him doin it. He did it, right? There was no tricky? He really did it.

Man made it look easy. But you can see him in the terminal stage of the plunge, adjusting his legs and his arms, slight little tweaks, unless observed closely would seem random but are very precise adjustments to his trajectory. Very professional, very in control. A master craftsman. Between :11 and :25 seconds...

Was he actually as high as 25,000 feet?

I never saw the jump all the way... I'm wondering if he was that high up? Took 2 mins... anyone have the full 2 mins footage?

Yes he began at 25,000, three guys went with him, they pulled their chords at 5000 feet.

His final descent from there is whats captured in the video. Other bits of video on YouTube like his body cam footage, are being pulled due to copyright.

In here, you see him hand off the oxygen mask, practice the flip for landing maneuver, and the terminal minor corrections at the end with his arms and legs. Bullseye!

I always wanted to go hand-gliding or skydiving. But this sounds just plain suicidal.


Suicides are hailed as cowards, daredevils as heros! Never could figure this out.

Daredevils have better PR.

Thanks for that video.

wow... that net wasn't very big at all. if he had got blown 50 feet to either side, I wonder if they could have moved the net in time?
