Ok, just to be clear. When you were practicing for the E-pace reveal jump you used a ramp and an oversized bouncy castle?

Just a couple of quick questions...

How badly does the car end up getting damaged?

What is the insurance like to cover something like that?

Have you still got the equipment handy?

I see race event potential here, that looks like fun  cloud9:

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Does that make it any less fun to do now?  ::)

I have to admit this looks like fun  :thumbsup:

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

So a wingsuit flight ending with landing inside a moving plane... Something tells me I'd be more likely to go head first through the propeller but I'd give it a shot.  :thumbsup:

How cool!  :thumbsup:

But I have a book called Sky Call (?) that I bought some *thinks* 35+ years ago when I was jumping every week which shows this happening...

Back then they had 'balloon suits' rather than wing suits that inflated after leaving the aircraft. They didn't have as much lift or control as the modern wing suits but the introduction of turbine powered aircraft to sky diving meant that the plane they jumped out of could dive vertically without over cooling the engine and the jumpers could 'fly' back into the plane 10,000 feet lower than they left it...
