Video: Plane Almost Hits Skydivers

(Video Link)

Last October 19, skydiver Forest Pullman and his passenger jumped out of an airplane at 13,000 feet of elevation over Thailand. They were having a good time for a few seconds. But right after they jumped, the pilot turned the plane around 180º and flew right at them. At the 0:15 mark in this video, the plane hits part of their chute and comes within a few feet of hitting them.

Pullman captured the entire event on a GoPro camera. His passenger seems unaware of how close they came to dying.

-via Daily Telegraph (warning: auto-start video)

I'm surprised at how clear and lacking of motion blur every frame was. They got a good look at that key moment. I was surprised enough to read up on it: "One of the issues with a camera like the gopro that makes them look very video-ish is the fact that they use shutter speed to control exposure and therefore end up shooting at a fast shutter speed in daylight- as many handycams do.
