Red Bull Gave HIM Wings for Sure

Baumgartner does it! There was some question about visor fogging, but that disappeared as he got lower. Looked like he turned into the wind at the end and his landing was a three-step walk. Then he fell to his knees and hung his head for a moment as the tracking guys ran over to him. I got a quick picture of him just after he landed and did an even quicker article.

That guy has nerves of friggin' steel, no doubt of it. His 128,000 foot jump record will probably last for....EVER.

Edit: spin reference removed. Added one picture and some additional material to the article.
