Skydiver Luke Aikins jumps 25000 feet without parachute

Published

on

A daredevil has leapt from a plane 25,000 feet into a giant net, becoming the first person in the world to complete a skydive without a parachute.

Luke Aikins was in free fall for around two minutes after jumping from a small propeller plane above Simi Valley, California on Saturday.

The 42-year-old was not wearing a wing suit or emergency parachute for the jump, which was broadcast live on television.

“I’m almost levitating, it’s incredible,” Mr Aikins said of the jump. “This thing just happened. I can’t even get the words out of my mouth.”

He thanked the dozens of crew members who spent two years helping him prepare for the jump, including those who assembled the net and made sure it worked.

While Mr Aikins has made over 18,000 skydives, he admitted being nervous before his latest feat.

During his fall, Mr Aikins was accompanied by three other skydivers, who did have parachutes.

One collected an oxygen mask Mr Aikins discarded at around 10,000 feet. Another was wearing a smoke canister to make the jumpers visible to those on the ground, while the third jumper was filming.
