I DID IT!! Skydive in Mission Beach the best and the highest skydive spot in Australia! I was jumping from 14000 ft and had about 60 seconds of free fall! Definitely one of the best experiences in my whole life and I'm very glad to have the possibilities to do things like this! :-) :-) #skydive #skydiveaustralia #skydivemissionbeach #skyisthelimit #freefall #bungeejump #australia #eastcoast #roadtrip #cairns #greatbarrierreef #goodlife #adrenaline #bestdayofmylife #lifeisgood…
Joseph William Kittinger II is a retired Colonel in the US Air Force and a USAF Command Pilot. Following his initial operational assignment in fighter aircraft, he participated in Project Manhigh and Project Excelsior in 1960, setting a world record for the highest skydive from a height greater than 31 kilometres (19 mi). He was also the first man to make a solo crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in a gas balloon.
A custom spacesuit has been designed to protect Felix Baumgartner for his attempt at the world's highest skydive. The suit will protect him from -70 degree temperatures and low pressure at the extreme altitude and maintain the oxygen and pressure levels he'll need to survive at supersonic speeds.
