When he was doing his AFF and was talking about his catapult, I thought this guy was nuts. He was a dreamer who put all he had in his dreams, and made all the non-believers dream.

Fly free.

Here you go:

Base jumping specialist Jean-Marc Mouligne died by drowning Saturday
in the Verdon gorges after a jump in La-Palud-sur-Verdon (in
Alpes-de-Haute-Provence), according to police reports.

Base jump is a dangerous sport which involves throwing oneself off
a cliff with a parachute. Jean-March Mouligne, 57 years old, was
known as the human catapult since he learned how to catapult himself
more than 100 metres from the ground before opening his parachute.

According to the police, he had made a jump, and it was on landing
that his parachute, falling into the water, pulled him to the bottom.

His body was found at the end of the morning by practioners of
white-water sports. He was removed by helicopter at the end of
the afternoon.

Jean-Marc Mouligne was originally from Romainville in Seine-Saint-Denis.

This can't be true!!

I am kind of hoping it's one of his jokes again.

Fly free you mad man, Cathie, the girls and I are going to miss the mad scientist with an unforgettable laugh.

I still can't believe it!

Edited to add pic thanks to Jochen. This was on set last year. Again we're going to miss you crazy frenchman. Very few people I have met can say they have had fuller a life.

Fly free Brother!
I only met you briefly in Chamonix last december on a parking lot on our way to an exit point...
When I first saw you I totally remember thinking:" Dude... is this old guy a jumper?" :$
You got you stashbag out of your car and off we went to the exit point... Got to chit chat with you for 15 very intertaining minutes!!!
You did come across as some sort of looney but in the most positive way!!! ;)
I had no idea that you were the guy behind the catapult... but now I put two and two together and I am not surprised in the least.... You are one of these guys who lived large and free...

May I age as good as you did brother...

RIP :( :( :(
