30 knot Eject

Hi all,

Just to show I am not the only "nutter" out there I thought I would show you a typical day out on the Hotrocks.

No safety measures were taken in the making of this clip.

As you can see I have a crew of "nutters"

They work fine - just don't try streaming them - right click and save as. If that isn't working you may not have the proper codecs.

The cox was wearing a lifejacket and there's a flare cannister on your A frame

The flare cannister contained beer and the life jacket has been fired off long time ago.

It was myself and another guy (I jumped first)we started off @ 10 knots and increased the speed untill we were jumping @ 28 ish. It takes a bit of technique as going in the wrong way seriously smacks the wind out of you.

Good fun though

I regret - dont agree . JUST BLOODY STUPIDITY`- you would take the smile of your face pretty quick if somebody had slipped and fallen on the prop.

for my next trick..... why dont you throw yourself out of a boeing at 30000 ft-
without a parcahute- has the same effect.

I am suprised this vid only stirred up a small amount of critism. Thought for sure I would be defending it tooth and nail.

Eupa - your right - but it was fun as can be seen by the laughter on the vid.

I think I will leave the airplane stunt for the time being.

maths and whatnot were never my strong point at school, but i dunno how you can equate hitting the water at 30 knots is the same as jumping out of a plane at 30,000ft.. cos if that was the fact, more people would be jumping out of a plane without the expense of a parachute..

As eupa is of a nervous disposition maybe he should actually get in a plane that takes off the ground. Or maybe they do it differntly in Belgium

Jonathan, I feel it only fair to warn you before Codders comes back on line tonight and starts an argument, that this is his plane.......
