Stuntman in freefall. No carsh. A first in aviation history!
A stuntman has made aviation history by becoming the first skydiver in the world to land without the use of a parachute.

Gary Connery , 42, from Oxfordshire, leapt from a helicopter a mile above Henley then glided down using a specially adapted wing suit before landing on a "runway" of 18,000 cardboard boxes.

"It was so comfortable, so soft. My calculations obviously worked out and I'm glad they did," he told Sky News afterwards.

I've been waiting for this guy to do that.
He's been talking about it for sometime now.

I actually predicted then 3-4 years ago.

"He'll land in boxes."
I dunno.

Just thought I'd mention.

Damn he still had a lot of speed but impressive none the less! I get enough of a rush landing my sailplane - I couldn't imagine what riding that suit in felt like!

I do have to dock him a few points for not flying a proper pattern

I still say Jeb Corliss was the first to hit earth without the use of a parachute:
