This is going to be crazy!!
Luke Aikins is a skydiver who has made more than 18,000 jumps in his life, but it’s his next jump — tomorrow night — that could change his life for the better… or the worse.
The skydiver has partnered with FOX to broadcast a live showing of one of his dives on Saturday night in a special called Heaven Sent — and there’s a kicker to why this jump is being filmed: Aikins is doing it without a parachute!
That’s right! No parachute, no wing suit, nothing but the clothes on his back as he jumps out of a plane 25,000 feet above the ground on live TV!!!
Aikins is hoping to become the first skydiver to ever land safely and parachute-free in a net!!!
He’s been planning for this thing and training on practice runs for more than two years — and tomorrow night, it’ll all happen!
Ch-ch-check out this vid from a couple months ago explaining a little more about the project (below):
Is this adventurous, or knowing the risks of sky diving, just plain foolish?! Regardless, it’s certainly unreal!!
We will absolutely be watching Saturday night, at 8:00 p.m. ET, only on FOX!!
