Defying gravity is a sport with parachuting/sky diving ? Show us how to do it. You can post some demo pictures or even some glamor pictures..


Parachuting is an activity involving a preplanned drop from a height using a deployable parachute.

The history of parachuting is not clear. It's known that Andre-Jacques Garnerin made successful parachute jumps from a hot-air balloon in 1797. The military developed parachuting technology first as a way to save aircrews from emergencies aboard balloons and aircraft in flight, later as a way of delivering soldiers to the battlefield. Early competitions date back to the 1930s, and it became an international sport in 1951.

Today it is performed as a recreational activity and a competitive sport, as well as for the deployment of military personnel Airborne forces and occasionally forest firefighters.

i've seen many parachuters before, that was way back when i was a kid, i thought that would be good and the feeling must be a bliss..

when i grew older i develop acrophobia, i would get the cold feet syndrome for just staring down when i'm like at 4th floor, i don't know how it freaking started i think i'll pass out when i'm that high

You should jump out of a plane without a parachute.
