Wind turbines – love ‘em or hate ‘em, would you jump off the top of one?
A bunch of crazy guys have been doing just that this weekend, from our turbine at Ecotech Swaffham, the world’s first ever legal base jump off a windmill apparently. 😉 In fact this is the final round of UK Pro Base championships 2008.
Hot off the virtual press is this video:
Modern parachutes are amazing, just 80m to open and land – on a target!
A bunch of us have abseiled of the turbine at Ecotech before, and we thought that was pretty cool, and ‘out there’… but this is whole nother level.
Even if they do make it look easy. Fair play.
