BASE Jumper Misses Target; Lands On Moving Land Rover

Back to Main Page
Posted On: Dec 4, 2009 By: Category: Land Rover News

When extreme jumper - a 31-year-old man named only as Kirill – jumped off a building in Moscow he certainly wasn’t aiming for the moving Land Rover but, you know, these things happen…

BASE Jumper

“I am an a******! I usually land on playgrounds or school stadiums, but I landed on a car! Well, I guess I will have to pay for the damage that I caused to the car,” Kirill said.

Kirill isn’t new at the sport, either. He’s been into B.A.S.E. jumping for three years now. For the uninitiated, B.A.S.E. is an acronym for Buildings, Antennas, Spans (bridges) and Earth (cliffs), the four categories of fixed objects from which one is “allowed” to jump.

BASE jumping grew out of skydiving, of course, but it’s a bit trickier. BASE jumps are generally made from much lower altitudes than skydives, and a BASE jump takes place in close proximity to the object serving as the jump platform. Because BASE jumps generally entail slower airspeeds than typical skydives (due to the limited altitude), a BASE jumper rarely achieves terminal velocity. Because higher airspeeds enable jumpers more aerodynamic control of their bodies, as well as more positive and quick parachute openings, the longer the BASE jumper can delay the opening of his parachute, the better.

This time he went from better to worse, however, as he was hospitalized with a fractured ankle. In addition to the driver, there was a woman and a child on the back seat of the vehicle, none of whom were injured. This is a Land Rover we’re talking about, after all.

Bet they were pretty surprised though.
