Skydiving on Mythbusters....Again

Recommended Posts

This is just a guess, but I am thinking that when they contacted the DZ and told them what they wanted to do, the DZ probably told them "no, you dont get 90 secs of freefall from 4 grand, no you can't talk in freefall and yes you can catch someone" but they did the episode anyway because it's a cool episode to do.

i wish they had done whether or not someone holding on to the rig could actually hang on when the parachute opens...

/They did make a nice rw jump, didn't they! ... now that elf at the end when the kid doesn't want to give up his present, the elf says "trust me" .. .. that elf is scary! no way would i trust him!!!

The full episode is available at http://video.discovery.com. Just download their little player (it took like 15 seconds) and the episode title is called 'Air Plane Hour'

If that doesn't work for you, PM me your address and I'll send you a DVD or VHS; I DVR'd it.

edit: made clicky

Who have you been arguing about this with? and what are they trying to convince you of?

It was entertaining...for the most part. The only thing that I really did not like was seeing Buster bounce. I know he's not real and it's just a Simulaid, but the image of seeing a human form hit the ground from freefall is very disturbing. They played that scene (and the scattered appendages) several times over. :|

I didnt like it either... i lost a good friend out at perris that went in with nothing out... i didnt ike the sensationalizing by showing the dummy bounce..

But other than that i dug the entire episode..
