Skydiver Luke Aikins jumped out of an airplane at 25,000 feet without a parachute, becoming the first person to land safely on the ground in a net. Aikins, 42, has deployed a parachute around 18,000 times over the last two and a half decades of his skydiving and BASE jumping career.
The jump was aired live on television via the Fox network during an hour-long special, with a few seconds delay, just in case something went wrong. In total Aikins fell for about two minutes above the California desert and then “landed” in a 30m square net without an incident. Watch the video below. Image Source: Screenshot/Youtube/2016
