My apologies if this has already been posted.

P.S. Check out the airspeed and altitude info at the bottom of screen. He gets up to Mach 1 before stabilizing.

My wife and I are both skydivers. We watched that jump live. I think I was hyper-ventilating while I was watching when I saw him in the spin. I kept saying to myself "stop the spin, stop the spin". When I heard the family and support in that room let out a yell when he got it stopped, I knew they were all thinking the same thing.

I know he had an AAD to open his reserve if he wasn't able to, but I'm glad I didn't have to see that.

Seeing this video brought back all the same emotions. Hearing him in freefall was incredible. I loved the line "I'm hauling ***".

Can't wait for my wife to see this also.
