Skydiving is already an extremely dangerous sport, but imagine jumping from an airplane at 25,000-feet without a parachute? Daredevil Luke Aikins will attempt this very stunt tomorrow, and without a wingsuit. He’ll have just one chance to land in a safety net the size of a 1/3 the size of a football field while descending at speeds up to 120mph. The total free fall time will be approximately 126-seconds, giving him enough time to maneuver towards the net. Continue reading for another video and more information.
“The landing target, which has been described as similar to a fishing trawler net, is designed to cushion his landing without allowing him to bounce off. So far it has been tested with dummies, but not all tests went as smoothly as Luke and his team would have hoped. One of those 200-pound came in with such speed that it simply crashed through the net,” reports Oddity Central.
