World's highest Naked Tandem Can't Post

Greets!

Yesterday we jumped the highest naked jump with a tandem from FL195 (19000ft) @DZ Vesivehmaa,Finland

http://www.youtube.com/...amp;feature=youtu.be

We heard the last record for a single naked jump was from 17700ft and wanted to beat that with style.

Blue wieners!

Did you use oxygen on the plane?

Hi All,

This clip made me smile, but I do want to echo Jon's question. Hypoxia sneaks up on you and you don't even know it. It is serious stuff

Take a look at:

I have a background in aviation and I can say that night vision starts to decline at 8k and things start going down hill after 10k. Tongue

Have fun and be safe

Canadian textbooks say that night vision starts to deteriorate above 5,000 feet MSL.

Ummm ... might want to list as NSFW next time! No problem with the nakedness (duh, of course I understood that from the thread title!), but the guy hanging out of the plane waiting for the tandem, trying to keep some circulation to his, um, extremities? Blush

Shocked

Thanks for the reply and for keeping it safe. I've done high alt. jumps with and w/o O2. Definitely recommend using O2. CrazyLaugh
