Did you all see this record sky diving jump?

At the end it looked like Roswell cops getting ready to blast him thinking he was an alien.

I was highly disappointed when I first saw it.

I was expecting better footage, and for maybe something to go wrong.

I wanted to be the first to say, "I guess Redbull doesn't give you wings" :o

There was a part where he starts to really spin over and over and there was a big fear if he spun too much, he would never recover. The spinning could have caused him to black out and never regain consciousness.

Also, this was all going on high up in the atmosphere where there wasn't enough air friction to control his stabilization.

That was pretty freaky.

But he ultimately made it all look fairly simple.

I wonder what he might do next.
