The Great Leap....Downward

This is the flight pattern of Michael Fournier, who has not yet attempted this jump because of high winds. A few notes - he will break the sound barrier at 761 mph, then he will accelarate to nearly ONE THOUSAND MILES AN HOUR before the thicker air slows him down, and he will free-fall for over seven minutes. Unreal. Good luck sir.

Did we mention he's a senior citizen?

He's 64, not really a senior citizen (although certainly not a young athelete).

And it failed:
