    That sure did have me confused for a second, I thought it was bizarre that he was comfortably sitting on the hang glider while it was upside down. And then the camera pans back and shows the hang glider dangling from a parachute. :shocked:

    Darwin was lurking that jump.

    The jumper pulled his main in a twisting backloop. He seemed to jump the gun. I would eat a few hundred feet and get stable.

    The para pilot was on the ball though. He deployed his belly rig on the spot, then had the situational awareness to crawl up on the top of his busted arse ship to avoid injury.

    If the jumper would've bat hung off the leading edge, that would've been worthy of a case of good beer.
