Video: US skydiver jumps 7.6 kilometres without parachute

Waar, Duhok:

A US skydiver with more than 18,000 jumps to his credit made history, becoming the first person to leap without a parachute and land in a net instead.

Luke Aikins, 42, landed dead centre in the 30-by-30-metre net at the Big Sky movie ranch on the outskirts of Simi Valley on Saturday after a 7600-metre free fall.

“I’m almost levitating, it’s incredible,” the jubilant skydiver said, raising his hands over his head.

“This thing just happened! I can’t even get the words out of my mouth,” he added
