Extreme committed a pre-planned jump without a parachute from a height of 7620 meters and landed on a net stretched over the California desert.

Parachutists know the position of the “box” – when the athlete falls flat, with his legs extended at 45 degrees, his arms and head are raised and form the letter “W”.

In this position, skydivers are able to move horizontally in the air. They can use their arms like the wings of an airplane, performing air maneuvers.

“It’s wise to land on your feet,” says Professor Björnstig.

Parachutists and in the usual mode are encouraged to land on full feet, and after touching the ground to fall on its side.

Of course, the controversial question is whether it will help at a speed of 200 km / h.
