    I hate you, I'm shit scared of hieghts but its one thing I've always wanted to do. If they record a video you gotta get it up on youtube or sommat so we can all watch you shittin your self in the plane. :teeth:

    I did it for my 19th birthday, I went to Leconfield Airfield and did a morning's training, a tandem jump first and then a solo jump. Its awesome and I would love to do it again. You should have fun.

    Btw, being afraid of height doesn't usually put a dampener on things, because you're so high up and falling so fast you don't have an accurate perspective. You don't realise how high you are until you pull the shoot and slow down a bit, by then you've usually gotten over the shock of jumping out of a plane.

    omg. it was fucking awful.

    we went from 14 000ft were it was 0 degrees, i had a 1 minute free fall at 200kms/hr. it was almost impossible to breathe, i felt like i was drowning lol!!

    then when the chute opened the harness across my chest was too tight so i still couldnt breathe. the air pressure fucked up ears and i was in a lot of pain.

    we got a dvd taken of the jump. my god it is so funny. now i have to figure out how to upload it.

    all that said, i'd probably do it again if i had the chance :lol:
