I heard, in wwii there was a bomber crew that their plane was going down. And there wasnt enough parachuts for everyone, and the pilot jumped with no parachut. He was thousands of feet in the air, and landed in a bed of snow and walked away from it. Is this true, does anybody know about this?
I read a similar story about a chaplin that was taking parachute training and free fell from aproximatly 1000 feet and ended up with a number ofr broken bones but lived. He landed on grass.
e was thousands of feet in the air, and landed in a bed of snow and walked away from it. Is this true, does anybody know about this?
I doubt anyone can survive a fall of THOUSANDS of feets :uhm:
I think I have heard the story told by the own man in a documentary, lot of years ago, it was a Lancaster, he was not the pilot, and was around 3000-4000 meters, the trees and snow softened the fall
right i heard something about pilot felling into snow and survive......
Interesting story about a guy who actually survived falling out of a plane at 33k. Amazing. He wrote some tips and tricks for people to survive. What a nice guy. Let's all thank Mr. Carkeet. :)
At some point you reach terminal velocity, it doesn't matter if it's a fall from 3,000 ft or 30,000 ft. What matters is the landing.
isn't the red army paratroopers who were jumping from a plane at 15-30 meters as a training ?
These stories are true henry. There was a British bomber where one of the crew did not have a paraschute, he jumped and landed in a haystack with only minor injuries. Was later helped out by the resistance to get back to England.
