Sky, plane, jump

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.

“This is a tiny object for that height,” Eykins said in a television interview. – You can not see the network, you only see the ground. But as you get closer, you can see the details on the ground. ”

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.

“All this — for example, an attempt to fly in the direction of a softer landing pad — increases the chances of survival,” says Professor Bjørnstig.

And, finally, the last thing a falling man can help himself – change position before hitting the ground.

“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. In addition, to weaken the impact force, instructors advise slightly bending the knees and keeping the legs tight. Of course, the controversial question is whether it will help at a speed of 200 km / h.

Skydiving is a high-adrenalin hobby. “There is no such thing as an absolutely safe parachute jump,” says the British Parachuting Association.

Approximately one of the 100 thousand jumps of professional skydivers ends in death.

Experience and quick-wittedness will undoubtedly help to survive in the event of a parachute failure. But still the best helper in this situation is luck. 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.
