Hi folks,

'Former paratrooper attempts record jump without parachute'

Did the helicopter have a radar altimeter?

Apparently he cheated by having air bubbles blown in to the water to soften his impact .... yes that is done in spring-board diving competitions ... but it does not completely remove the risk.

Press releases said that the jumped to raise money for a charity for mental health of former soldiers. Yes, I can understand that dangerous sports help "back-fire" PTSD, but I still think the stuntman needs his head examined.

The term "back-fire" comes from a recent interview with BASE jumper Jeb Corliss in the latest issue of "Outside" magazine.
