I don't think he boomed - but got really close - unofficially it looked like he maxed around 740 mph or so. So cool though.

I know he said he was retiring after this, but something tells me he will pull a Favre (in a cool way, though).

They're reporting now that he broke the sound barrier.

So cool - he hit Mach 1.24.

Is there a replay I could watch of the jump itself?


Here's a low quality version.

No clue what his jump speech was verbatim, but I am sure all he wanted to say was 'f*ck it'.

That's insane. There is nothing in this world you could offer me to do something like this.

this is how I want to die. When they tell me I'm too old or when I know it's time, I want to jump out of a plane/balloon from as high as I can afford and freefall sans parachute

Check out his cam on his suit when he was in free fall.
