Record Breaking BASE Jumper Miles Daisher Shows What Can Go Wrong When Wing Suit Flying
Welcome to your worst nightmare
Giving birth to kittens, all of your teeth falling out, standing in front of class naked, waking up with the urge to switch from snowboarding to skiing… all these a regular nightmares endured by literally thousands of people a night (and we know because they don’t shut up about it for weeks).
But how about being dragged backwards through the air, by an aeroplane what’s tethered to your left ankle? When it comes to nightmare scenarios, it’s right up there. But what are the chances of that actually happening?
Well, if your record breaking BASE Jumper and wingsuit pilot Miles Daisher, then you’ve already been through the ordeal first hand.
"Miles Daisher is no average Joe"
While jumping from a Cessna, just like he’s done countless times before, Daisher managed to get his squirrel suit hung up on the wheel of the plane. Which then dragged him along for a terrifying ride.
Most regular human beings at this point would panic. In fact, no, most regular human beings wouldn’t even be diving out of a plane, but Miles Daisher is no average Joe.
Rather than panic, he relaxed, got into the sweet-spot, where he was affectively floating thanks to his body position, and waited for his buddies to cut him loose before flying off, down to the ground safely.
