Travel Video of the Week: Skydiver Jumps 25,000 Feet Without a Parachute


Did you see the dude (Luke Aikins) who became the first skydiver to jump from a plane without a parachute or wingsuit and live to tell the story? Aikins jumped from 25,000 feet and fell for about two minutes above the California desert, landing on a net held up by four cranes. The jump was aired live on Fox during an hour-long special. In case you missed it like I did, here’s the two-minute version (also above).
