Skydiving at Jet Speeds...

You won't catch me doing that anytime soon...

Caption: May 9th, 2007-- Have you ever wondered what it would be like to jump out of a passenger jet like the famous hijacker in the 70's-- DB Cooper? What I can tell you is that it is a rush like no other or probably anything else on earth for that matter, just the sheer wake from the fuselage where it creates a suction as you exit that literally rips you out of the aircraft; then the blast from the engines added on top of that->just do the math-> that equals one wild ride.

As for what happened to DB Cooper, my take on this is simple, he had inferior equipment and the big question is was he trained or not and did he even know how to put on a rig harness himself? Nobody really knows but my estimate now that I have done it is 40% made it 60% not. The most amazing thing about this photo itself is the photographer. Imagine for a second taking a clear photo like this as you have just been flung out of a jet and you have about a split second to take it!! I give her the most credit here and YES it's a HER!! Later in the near future I will post a unusual sighting that happened on a skydive that I did see with my own eyes that was very strange and unexplained.
