Luke Aikins on Saturday 30 th July, 2016 became the first skydiver to jump from a plane without a parachute or wingsuit and live to tell the story.

The jump was aired live on television via the Fox network during an hour-long special. Aikins fell for about two minutes above the California desert, appearing to soar effortlessly, arms extended, face downward. And as he neared the ground, with a mere second to go, he expertly flipped onto his back and landed without incident.
