I watched it, he did it.
I did hear there was a time delay in the broadcast, "just in case".

No such thing ;)

Kudos to the guy - while you can fly your body without a wingsuit in freefall so you can go forward, back and sideways, he had to hit a target only 100x100' wide. That is something else.

He did hit out near an edge of the net. Pretty impressive.

Since he succeeded everyone is saying "How brave! Awesome!"
Had he missed and killed himself folks would be like "What a foolish thing to try!"

I remember when Travis Pastrana (motorcycle freestyle/extreme sports/etc) did this, but he jumped out of a plane without a chute for about 30sec & then hitched a ride with someone WITH a chute.



. . . but to go all the way to the ground without, that's crazy!
