Stuntman Gary Connery dropped from a helicopter 2,400 feet in the air. His wingsuit slowed him down, but not by much. Connery would survive only if he hit a pile of boxes arranged to cushion his fall:
He landed on a strip measuring about 350ft (100m) by 45ft (15m) - and at its highest point 12ft off the ground - at Temple Island Meadows, on the Buckinghamshire and Berkshire border.
In order to survive the audacious stunt, he had to flare his wing suit about 200ft from his target in order to bring his gliding speed down to 50mph and his vertical falling speed to 15mph.
Parachutes are for the weak.
