Plane to Plane skydive (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGphGbJool4)
Ok - take 2 Cessnas and equip one with a drogue, fly in formation and climb, then deploy the drogue (with a human deployment bag -natch) and let Cessna stabilize nose down. Then jump out of the other Cessna and freefall to the drogue stabilized Cessna. Float in the door, cut away the drogue, stabilize in normal flight, then exit and parachute to the ground.

I was wondering all the time, what they had in mind to do if the propeler came too close!!??! But it´s wonderful since they made it!!

woah, thats amazing

but how is that possible? the plane is heavier than the jumper, so logically the plane would fall faster, how was he able to catch up with the plane??

Maybe that parachute behind the plane was there only for looks?

Not sure what year that was but I know for certain that is the Golden Knights. They were approaching the bottom of their "diamond" manuver - 2 exit and track away from each other, then turn back and track towards each other with a crossover at the bottom. Unfortunately they misjudged the track and collided.

Galileo and Newton say otherwise. In the void, two objects, no matter what their masses are, fall with the same acceleration and speed -this is basic school Physics.

If not for air resistance, a brick will fall the same speed than a feather -only the brick will hit harder and stronger the floor given its superior mass.

So it's air resistance and drag what matters here, as the pilot of that plane has clearly put the engine in idle mode, and made the propeller help in create drag enough to allow the diving vertically guy catch and keep up with him.

You can say that about everything.

There's a skydiving DVD called "Good Stuff" that's full of crazy junk like that.

Car jump here.

The same I thought last year when a workmate told me he was to climb the Naranjo de Bulnes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naranjo_de_Bulnes).

I asked him: "To do what?", but he didn't answer.

Because they could...

Most stunts have no point but the point is that there is danger and someone overcomes the possibility of failure.

Skydiving itself... Whats the point? Many find it fun. But why jump out of a perfectly good airplane if you don't have to? Again because its fun for some. They must have found this stuns possibility to be a fun endeavor to try and see if it could be done.

Why fly across the Atlantic if you can go by ship? Ask Charles Lindbergh......

Well Im 33 years old now and I did learn it in 7th grade I think, but everything falls at the same rate of speed in a free fall. Of course there is conditions such as lift that can come into play. I remember the old experiment where a feather was placed in a vacuum cylinder and was dropped at the same time a bowling ball was from exactly the same elevation, and both reached the ground at the same time.

I think the plane would actually fall at a slower rate because of its size and surface area compared to a human.

S!

You know I don't think that was all that bad/dangerous. Perhaps not anymore that an ordinary jump.

You want danger? I just uploaded this. Check it out. I think this is dangerous!

To conquer Creta or seize a bridge too far in Flanders, that is something I could understand.

To arrive earlier, found powerful Transatlantic airlines and earn lots of money, besides of making a decisive advance in human communication and transport?

Charles Lindbergh was OK because it was 1927, he was one of the first to do so, and the first to do it alone. His trip encouraged the progress of airplane technology and the establishment of regular transoceanic flights.

What new possibilities for humankind is opening this moron of the video?

Lindbergh did what he did to win the Orteig prize.

$25,000 was quite a lot of money in 1927.

These kind of things are still extremely dangerous.

Avont29`s example shows horrorifically what can happen when it goes just slightly wrong.


But sometimes every man has to do something dangerously stupid at least once in his life just to prove himself.

In vacuum, things will accelerate at the same onset of speed (9.81 m/s²).
IRL, however, drag and inertia (by weight) go into the calculation.

Thtatswhy a feather won't fall/ accelerate as quickly as a lead-ball for example (ref. Gallileo who threw stuff off the tower of Pisa).

Apollo 15 proved that, dropping a falcon-feather (quite appropriate, b/c the LM was called "Falcon") and some other stuff simultaneously while being on the moon.
As there is no atmosphere (well almost none), feather and the other stuff would impact at the same moment.
They did.

Gallileo therefore was ultimately proved right.

Quite funny - let's shoot off a rocket to the moon to finally prove a 300 year old law of physics http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif
Well, of course that was not the only purpose of the mission http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well, exactly. All I know is if I drop a feather and a heavy object togther from 10feet, the heavy object hits the ground first, no matter what the physics chaps say. The fact that you have to be on the moon to prove they do fall at the same rate is kinda makes the `feather falls at the same speed as a cannonball` kinda moot on planet earth.

A bit like saying 60lb weight of feathers weighs the same as 60lb cannonball. But no one fires feathers out of a cannon.

But then I don`t pretend to be smart.

A physics chap will tell you exactly the same.
However, he'll tell you this is due to drag and inertia.
By gravity alone (in vacuum), both objects would land at the very same moment.


A bit like saying 60lb weight of feathers weighs the same as 60lb cannonball. But no one fires feathers out of a cannon.


Shooting a 60lb sack of feathers would have the same energy-bleed (ad therefore the same impact energy) as a 60lb cannonball.
The only difference would be the featers' flexibility upon impact (obviously limiting its effectivity in combat).

In vacuum, 60lbs is 60lbs - same energy all the time.
