I'm not sure you need to be that fit for falling! You might need a lobotomy though!

Amazing! Shocked

It's strange, but I found the most stomach-churning bit was when they were standing on the over-hang before launching themselves into the big void.

I suppose it's because I can relate to that as it's closer to my own experience than flying!

I used to parachute and I fly. However I suffer vertigo! Doesn't affect my flying or parachuting from a plane but no way could I stand on the edge of the cliff like that, go figure!

As for pulling your arms in, that would just stop you tracking and increase your rate of decent turning you from semi-missile to bomb Smile

The best bit for me is where they track across the cliff face and the part where one guy scream across the cliff edge road, if he had only got that slightly wrong he'd have hit, nasty!

How about the poor people driving on that road at the time. Can you imagine suddenly seeing that hurtling towards you!
