A great example of how you can escape even in seemingly impossible conditions the branches on these trees are reasonably substantial) when you land at control speed

 

It could have been much worse; if the Pilliga Man had got them we'd never know what happened.

I walked in the Pilliga about 50 years ago and there were straight roads at about 1 mile intervals running at 90deg toeach other. from memory they were just about wide enough for a wingspan, but not smooth.
