Man Plunges 25,000ft Without Parachute

October 20th, 2016

Skydiver Luke Aikins lands safely in a net after plummeting to the ground in California without a parachute. A stuntman has fallen 25,000ft from a plane to the ground without wearing a parachute, landing in a net at 120mph.

Luke Aikins, a professional skydiver with 18,000 jumps under his belt, leapt from a plane without a parachute in a stunt broadcast live on television.

He endured forces of nearly 4G as he landed in the net on his back in the Simi Valley, California.

When asked afterwards how he felt, he said: “I’m almost levitating. It’s incredible. To think what just happened… to be honest I just can’t get it out of my mouth – all these guys… everybody. It is awesome.”

The net that 42-year-old Mr Aikins landed in was just 100ft by 100ft.
