Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Paralyzing Collision

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Paralyzing Coll...

Stupid DOES hurt (a little too much in this case). Videographer Tim gets too close to “Origami Flying Mofo” and a nasty canopy wrap ensues. Origami Mofo cuts away, but Tim’s not done yet — his lines entangle the reserve, which turns into a blue ball of nylon. Tim impacts a cornfield, breaking his pelvis,... Watch Video »

Wingsuit Narrowly Escapes Collision With Gondola

As if the Tianmen mountains in China weren’t breathtaking enough, Espen Fadnes has a breathtaking moment of his own when something unexpected happens to his wingsuit and he narrowly escapes a deadly collision with a gondola. Watch Video »

Jumping off a bridge, getting whipped into line twists on opening, then squeezing a parachute through rappel lines and landing on railroad tracks isn’t really my thing. BUT, it certainly makes for an entertaining Bridge Day video. Glad the star of this show landed safely with an awesome story to tell. Watch Video »

A bridle wrapped around a student’s foot certainly isn’t an ideal deployment, but it beats having the bridle wrapped around the neck like this other AFF student. Watch Video »

Nothing makes you shit the proverbial bed than when you’re an AFF student running out of altitude and you deploy your parachute while spinning on your back / head down. Great job by the student on getting his parachute out despite the situation. As they say: never sacrifice altitude for stability. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Panic Mode - AFF Level 6

If the goal of this AFF jump was to panic and not arch at all, then I consider it a huge success! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: The Death Spin

Friday Freakout: The Death Spin

ILS co-founder Rick Winkler thought he’d have fun on a routine jump with some inflatable toys. Little did he know the inflatable would wrap around his leg, put him into a spin cycle of death, and burst all the capillaries in both of his eyes. True story. Stick around until the very end for a... Watch Video »

This is by far the craziest footage I’ve ever seen and couldn’t wait until Friday to post it. Straight up batshit crazy! Two airplanes collide. One plane loses its wing. The skydivers escape, including the pilot flying the fiery mess. The other pilot lands a damaged airplane. All without injury or death… AMAZING!!! Watch Video »

Some of you may find this disturbing to watch, but this (older) video highlights the very real and potentially deadly effects of hypoxia on a high altitude jump. In this particular case, all of the skydivers on this plane had varying degrees of hypoxia by the time they climbed to 21,000 feet. Clearly there was... Watch Video »

If you remember to fasten your seatbelt before take off, good for you. If you forget to take your seatbelt off before exiting the plane, then you might end up hanging from the plane with an embarrassed and frightening look on your face like this guy. Take notes people, this is important stuff. Watch Video »

At the bottom end of Geoff’s Level 1 AFF jump, he deploys his main and has a bag lock. Watch the video to see how the situation gets handled by the instructor on his reserve side. According to Geoff, the fun wasn’t over once the video ends. The reserve deployment released the bag lock, giving... Watch Video »

Join us on a little adventure with Jimbo (wearing the camera). He’s chasing the rabbit during a tracking dive and gets taken out by a jumper from above. He’s unconscious in freefall (not Gerardo Flores’ kind of “unconscious”), until shortly after his friends get to him and hold him stable, AFF style. If your friend... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Canopy Collision - Camera Guy vs. 48 Jump Wonder

Friday Freakout: Canopy Collision - Camera Guy vs....

It’s rarely a good idea to pull in place, especially when you’re skydiving with newer jumpers. Luckily this canopy collision ends well, and let’s be honest, it’s could’ve been MUCH worse… like these other 100 jump wonders have a hard head-on canopy collision after “break off.” Watch Video »

Not entirely sure what happened here, but it looks like this skydiver passed out shortly after exit, then woke up and deployed only seconds before impact. And his buddy had quite the hard landing as a result of his low pull too. Anyone else have an explanation for this? Or was this hypoxia or an... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Close Call, Near Canopy Collision

Friday Freakout: Close Call, Near Canopy Collision

Just because you’ve never had a close call after break-off, doesn’t mean it can’t happen. This video is a perfect example of why tracking and separation is essential on every skydive. Especially on tracking jumps when it can be even more unclear where to go to get that separation you need. Up the altitude for... Watch Video »

Now this is how you retrieve your main after a cutaway!! You know you’re having a bad day when you cutaway from a pilot chute in tow and your bridle still wants to play. It gets WAY more interesting when he tows in his main! Whew! If only he re-packed it on the ride down. Watch Video »

Holy shitballs, Batman! I just soiled myself. Nothin’ like your bridle and d-bag wrapping around the strut of a helicopter to spice up a heli jump. Things get even spicier once the canopy starts to inflate. Scary stuff like this can be avoided with something as simple a gear checks. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR GEAR. If... Watch Video »

This is what a human projectile looks like — it’s heavy, it’s fast, and it won’t stop for anyone. Take notes and don’t do this, especially if you only have 65 jumps like this guy. Slow is fast. And in case you’re wondering, here’s what a real mid-air collision looks like. Watch Video »

It’s never fun when you’re close to the ground and your parachute is still there but suddenly not square — especially around 250 feet! However, no real freakout from this skydiver, but I’d wonder what was going on in his head. Safe landing in the end, but yeah, yowsah! ~Mel Watch Video »
