On June 30, 2016, Luke Aikins, a senior American skydiver, made history by becoming the first person to jump from an altitude of about 25,000 feet (7600 m) without any parachute assistance. The world was shocked to see him perform this great feat with the intention of landing in a 100-square-foot net.
Netizens are currently viralizing shocking scenes of the stunt called ‘Heaven Scent’ on the internet. Skydiver Luke Aikins was 42 at the time. He jumped down from a plane and fell into a soft net with a net structure of 30 to 30 meters. Netizens call this the ‘fly trap’.
This dangerous stunt was performed in the California Milky Way. And the crowd, eager to see it, suffocated for about two and a half minutes of freefall. And that person landed on the softest web and performed his feat.
Unlike the regular stunt videos that were first recorded and then shared on television, Aikins, a serious skydiver and BASE jumper, decided to broadcast the stunt live on television. It also aired on Fox Networks as an hour-long special.
After stunting on the fly trap and landing all the people very safely, Aikins climbed into the net, cheered and hugged his wife Monica with joy and pride. Because he broke the Guinness World Record for the highest skydive without anything like a parachute or wing suit for safety.
Those amazing scenes are now going viral again with Twitter users. He shared the video on May 31 and captioned it ‘Complete Bangers’.
The dazzling stunt caught much of Netizens’ attention. This video has received over 3 million views and over 30,000 likes in just 24 hours of sharing. And many Netizens have been watching this video and posting many comments in amazement.
Aikins had been training for about two years before creating this record. He had previously set a record by jumping down from a height of about 18,000 feet with the help of a parachute. Screen Actors Guild Aikins was ordered to wear a parachute when third-generation Skydiver Aikins wanted to break that record. But just minutes before performing this feat, Aikins dropped the idea of wearing a parachute. What happened next was a world record.
