Skydiver Becomes First Person to Jump and Land Without Chute
42-year-old skydiver with more than 18,000 jumps made history when he became the first person to survive a leap without a parachute. After a two-minute freefall, Luke Aikins flipped onto his back at the last second and landed dead center into a 100-by-100-foot net at the Big Sky movie ranch on the outskirts of Simi Valley in California.

Nope. Not the first. Not even the second. Shoot, not even the third, fourth, or fifth. And they didn’t have nets.
