As someone who's terrified of heights, stuff like this holds a morbid fascination for me. It was the same with Felix Baumgartner parachuting from 24 miles up a few years ago, and Nik Wallenda tightrope-walking a quarter of a mile across the Grand Canyon. So as I watched this I was alternating between "This is stupid!" and "This is amazing!" Whistle

I don't for a second understand how you can jump from almost five miles up and land in a 100x100-foot net. Does someone really have that much control over where they land when they jump? I dunno. scratchead

Did anyone catch where the jump took place?

"After a two-minute freefall, Luke Aikins landed dead center in the 100-by-100-foot net at the Big Sky movie ranch on the outskirts of Simi Valley."

I don't know exactly how close it was to where Little House was filmed, but it is the same movie ranch.
