Have to say jumping out of aircraft really isn't my thing CD! Even if the thing was on fire and the pilots had already baled then I'd take my chances with a fire extinguisher and a quick read of "Flying for Dummies"
Far play to him though, that takes some guts to do that!
Ha ha mate that'd be a long 'dope rope' (No offence guys, Airborne jargon) good jod he has that helmet on coz his face would look like a Tomato at the end of it... I remember going into cloud at 17,000' and exiting a 9,000' (At Night) and my face looked like a tangerine for days! CD
did a few jumps with him a couple of years ago . Felix is an excellent guy always funny and really knows his stuff.
They'll try it on thursday again and that time i hope its gona work out , he was working so hard for it he really deserved some nice weather !!!!
Apparantly he is aiming on breaking the sound barrier... hardly surprising as he must be carrying at least 50 kilo's in gonads. Somethings just hold you in complete awe... this for me is one of them. Respect.
