Unless you’re part of a crew led by a guy named Dominic Toretto, you probably shouldn’t jump out of an airplane while inside a car.
The stunt took place last year, when veteran skydiver Konstantin Petrijcuk and a bunch of his friends headed out to Arizona, where they ended up performing this Fast & Furious-like stunt.
In order to make their experience even more extreme, they decided to ride in the actual car as it’s falling, which as it turns out, was extremely dangerous as the car went on to fall in a completely unpredictable manner.
“It was like riding a roller coaster on an invisible track!” Well, that seems like a pretty good way to illustrate the experience. According to the description of the video, aside from a few close calls, “short term injuries” were also an issue, but eventually everybody made it down alive.
As soon as the car was pushed out of the plane, the person pushing it actually fell awkwardly, scraping the side of the car. To us, that looked like it might have hurt, although with that much adrenaline surging, who knows?
Another dangerous moment was when everybody was ejected from the vehicle, just as it began rolling uncontrollably. In hindsight, it was probably for the best to involuntarily exit the car at that precise moment rather than risk sticking around and pass out due to all that spinning. In any case, as the saying goes, don’t try this at home – unless you have a death wish, that is.
