Yeah...NO!

I think that falls into the same category I put hand-feeding great white sharks. It can be done with care and the right training and equipment...but I don't want to.

That was on the Discovery channel a while back.

After watching it a 2nd time. I still feel I'd rater fly them than jump from them. And definitely not do what he did.

Oh come on, jumping is not that bad I know some jumpers that would think gyros are nuts, I like them both.
