    Why jump out of a perfectly good airplane, when you can jump INTO one? LOL...

    Only about 22 years too late. Much harder when no one is at the controls.

    ...at least when you jump OUT of a plane your chances of hitting the prop are pretty slim.

    That's about as extreme as it can get.

    I just saw that! That's freakin awesome! Although, it's not the first time. The first was a freefall jumper and the plane nose down under a drag chute.

    There is nothing, nothing on God's green Earth that would convince me to try that. Not even the need to deliver the antidote serum for orphans stranded on a freak ice-flow . . . in a Disney movie. Nothing. At. All.

    I’m guessing that airplane crew had about as much exposure to death as the jumper.

    If the jumper had hit the prop, the plane would have crashed, in rough terrain.

    Neat to watch, but there is no way I would ever be involved in that stunt.

    I'm not so sure this is true. Even if the prop/engine failed upon collision, the plane would still be fine and perform a forced landing.

    There are two kinds of people in this world, those that will jump from high places in a wing suit and those that won't. Put me in the latter category.
