Default Parachutes are for the weak!!!

Who needs a parachute, this man has balls of steel!!!

A stuntman has entered the history books to become the first skydiver to land safely without using a parachute.

Gary Connery, 42, leapt 2,400ft from a helicopter while wearing a specially made "wing suit" and swooped towards a "runway" of 18,600 cardboard boxes in an Oxfordshire field.

That's impressive

Possibly a new thing for airborne assault troops? Providing the enemy like leaving large piles of cardboard boxes around

Nice, Jeb Corlis planned to do this but much more complex and dangerous. Nice to see someone do it in a practical way. Imagine an inflatable belly airbag instead of a chute, it will happen.

Really? There is no point in this except exhibition. Its not practical and is probably more costly and dangerous than using parajumps. Id like to see airbag that can sustain all that power.

I severely doubt that this jump was about it being practical, but hey gives an alternative to a parachute though
