As a side note, the ramp design shown in the vid is so tall, that he has ample time to steer to the side, pull and land if he misses his trajectory (he won't be wearing a skydiving rig). And then go try again. I don't believe he wants to die doing this, and I think its really fucking morbid what people say about his endeavours.
Appreciate the mans effort, regardless of what you think of him as a person/jumper. And shouting "just fucking do it already" from the back row is silly. If the plan is not finished, would you?
I don't think it'll happen anytime soon but it will be done. Possibly someone will beat him to it.
It's already everywhere on the web. But seeing how the canopy didnt do ANYTHING to decelerate or even stand-up the jumper, I think Chris upstaged James Boole by a large margin, and for sure beat Jeb to the punch. No multi-milion dollar slip and slide needed either...
If the time difference between the pictures is constant, it does not look like a pc hesitiation but as if he lost a lot of time finding the pc or just flying with the hand on the pc and not pulling... But this is just a guess.
For some reason it has not been publicised BUT a guy has already done "better" - he did not deploy and survived. He flew into the tree line and walked away with a minor stomach injury. Heal fast Christopher.
