Interesting base jump.... or slide?

Recommended Posts

OK, there is not really an ideal forum for this - not really a glide or a soar but then I like how they use the 'Sail' soundtrack....

"Compression Fracture of the T12 Vertebra, 5 stitches to the eye, 6 stitches to the chin, severely sprained Back, wrist and hand. multiple bruised areas."

 

Well, the scenery is very nice anyway.

Lucky he needed stretcher.gif.b5405e56385022b0c281bce09d6ac829.gif rather than:work:. I've always thought jumping out of perfectly good planes was silly but BASE jumping seems to be 031_loopy.gif.e6c12871a67563904dadc7a0d20945bf.gif

 

Another thing NOT on my to do list is wing suits, they look good in videos but that's as close as ill get

Yeah I think I'd prefer to fly a mistreated jab over tiger country than chance the odds with that:hide:

 

I wonder what the stats of deaths per participant are for wing suit flyers? I remember seeing footage of one clipping (not gently) a bridge a fair while ago that ended badly but otherwise I don't recall any other ones. Maybe people expect them to die so it's not so newsworthy?

OK, this is very close to suicidal: 033_scratching_head.gif.b541836ec2811b6655a8e435f4c1b53a.gif

 

With BALLS that big, I am surprised that he fitted through there.
