I am Luke Aikins, and I Jumped Out of a Plane From 25,000 Feet With No Parachute During the Stride Gum Presents Heaven Sent Live TV Special – Ask Me Anything
My short bio:
Hi, everyone. I’m Luke Aikins, a third-generation skydiver. I made a few headlines around the world this July when I jumped out of an airplane from 25,000 feet on live TV with no parachute or wing suit — just the clothes on my back — and landed safely on the ground.*
You can watch the whole special, called Stride Gum Presents Heaven Sent, for free right now on Stride Gum’s YouTube channel. Now I’m ready to jump in (yup) and answer any questions you might have about the jump, the science behind it or anything else you’d like to know. I’ll start you guys off by answering everyone’s first 2 questions: Yes I am a little crazy but no, I am not insane.
(*And by the way, I’m a professional skydiver with extensive training. Do not attempt, re-create or re-enact this jump!)
EDIT: Thank you so much for asking me about my Stride Gum, Heavensent Jump. I hope you enjoyed my comments.
