Skydiver Gary Conner Becomes First To Land Without Chute

Amazing.

Gary Connery, 42, leapt 2,400ft from a helicopter while wearing a specially made “wing suit” and swooped towards a “runway” of 18,600 cardboard boxes in an Oxfordshire field.

Five seconds before he hit the target he flared his suit to decrease his descent and glide angle before plunging into the boxes to break his fall.

Mr Connery jumped from 2,400ft without using a parachute, followed by a skydiving cameraman.
