    I wonder how long it took him to hit the ground. He probably regretted his decision when he realized that he didn't have wings.

    Re: Man jumps from plane without a parachute

    People have a serious "herd" instinct. Combined with the fixation that cameramen often get behind their viewer, I am not surprised that this happened.

    One of the reasons that jump-masters always wear a chute in the military, is that at early in military parachuting at least one un-chuted jump-master followed a "stick" of jumpers out the door.
