I could be wrong, but im not so sure that was done in CO.



From what I read on a local news paper website a while ago there were some legal "practice" jumps done at another S that has been used in movies before. We'll have to watch it tonight and see what they used for the show.

Yeah I didn't think that "S" was legal either. It sure was in the daytime so they must have gotten a permit like the XXX movie....


So how busted up did the camera guy get? On the show they said two broken legs and a lacerated face.

What exactly did he do wrong? It looked like a low turn to me and that LZ is pretty tight ing the gorge.

Great episode... it was awesome to see Jimmy and Marta on there, and Jimmy did great.

That guy Perry annoys the hell out of me every time I see him on there though.



Check this out from Discovery's website...

"Perry's Thoughts:
The only thing that I can say about Jeremy Pouchert's stunt is that it was amazing. Personally, it was one of the most stressful shows that I have ever been on. The team that Jimmy had put together to do this reverse-bungee BASE jump was remarkable. They had definitely done their homework, and from preparation to testing to execution of the stunt, they were flawless. But this was a very dangerous stunt with no room for error, and every day we showed up on set was a day that somebody could get seriously hurt or killed. As the week went on with the weather constantly threatening, Jimmy and his crew persevered. And on stunt day, with rain coming down and the temperature dropping, Jimmy accomplished the stunt successfully."

Somebody posted the episode on Skydiving Movies:

Pretty cool stunt. Now I know what Jimmy was talking about back in September when he said he was doing a bunch of bungee jumps and couldn't say why.

Anyone heard from the injured jumper? Looked pretty bad. Looked like he hooked it in for some reason...

Hey Drew, I’ve just returned from a walkabout.

I agree! Actually, I consider it a great stunt. The conditions were absolutely miserable. The rain was pouring down and it was near freezing. That kind of takes the fun out of a great dream. Jimmy stepped up and pulled the stunt off flawlessly. His planning, experience and his team shined big time.

You could hear a pin drop before Jimmy launched. I wish I had a recording of the roar that came from the canyon when he landed. Everyone was cheering from the bottom and top of the canyon. It echoed and rumbled through the canyon louder than any freight train with horns blazing could ever produce. You could easily hear it for miles, it was cool as hell!

I smile every time I think of it. Jimmy ROCKS!

JM is doing well. Talked with him today. Great guy! Young, strong and smart, he’ll be back soon!

Marta’s stunt will be a great episode also! The stunt will air in April, you’re going to love this one!

Have Fun!
Baz
