Plane-to-plane

This guy is a skydivin' fool. For that matter, counting the pilot and video guys, there appear to be more maniacs involved in this stunt than I'd care to meet in one group. Click the image to see the clip.

A skydiver jumps out of one small plane, into a second one and then jumps from the second to the ground. (How'd you like to try this one, Hungo?)

From Lou B (who sent this by e-mail for some reason).

I showed an avid skydiving friend of mine the "Skydivin' Fools" link that you posted and he replied:

This is from about 4 years ago. The most important thing they had to do was put a broom stick in the cabin that the pilot could shove forward to stop the prop from spinning when he cut the engine of the target plane - just in case the skydiver over-shot the grip bar they put on the wing strut and went into the prop. They had to take the target plane lower than planned in order to get the skydiver in the plane, but it worked. They had a brief scare in getting the engine restarted, too.
