Stuntman Gary Connery celebrates after his attempt to become the first skydiver to land without the aid of a parachute on May 23, in Henley-on-Thames, England. Professional Hollywood stuntman performed a 3,000ft BASE jump without the aid of a parachute, landing on 24,000 cardboard boxes in his home town of Henley upon Thames. Gary was wearing a revolutionary wing suit, which lessens the forces of gravity as he descended, requiring him to land at the optimal angle to the boxes as he approached at speeds in excess of 90mph.
