Of all the crazy things someone could do, this has to take the cake. Never try this at home folks.
This weekend, something crazy happened. A guy jumped out of a plane without a parachute (on purpose!!!) and survived.
Never fear, it was all planned and under controlled circumstances! Well, as controlled as a stunt like this could be.
Insane skydiver and BASE jumper Luke Aikins executed his unbelievable plan to perfection, jumping from an airplane 25,000 feet in the air sans parachute or wingsuit to land in a small target zone.
He didn't just land splat on the ground or plan to pull some impossible superhero land. The 42-year-old landed into a 100 foot by 100 foot net above the ground! Which is an impressive feat to get all the targeting on point!
Even though there was a net, you wouldn't find us anywhere near this stunt.
But watching it all unfold is something pretty freakin' amazing, so behold the insanity... Which only took a sum total of 27 seconds!
Never try this at home folks. You're not an extreme sportsperson and we best leave this stuff up to serious professionals. Luke spent a year and a half prepping for the feat, and was well aware of the risks that came along with it.
Not that you could try it, considering you probably don't exactly have a plane sitting in your backyard...
