It is 1926. Fred Osborne is attempting the first motorcycle parachute jump.

He races over a cliff in Los Angeles, California at 60mph. And plummets to the ground…

    He looks Russian, or more accurately I should say: he acts Russian.

    • He was lucky that was a heck of a plummet.

        Insanely lucky!
        Had he jumped anywhere else, or was going any faster or slower or had not struck those power lines in just the right way…

        Apparently he was part of a troop of areal barnstormers in California, “The 13 Black Cats”. Which I think is an awesome name!

    Apparently he did not do well in Math and Physics in school.

    Did he realize he needed a jump higher than an anthill to succeed. Methinks not?

    Gravity is a government plot to prevent people from having too much fun.

      entropy is another buzz killer. Maybe if that dreamy Justin trudeau gets elected he will repeal the lot.

    Awful Kinawful.

      That was a good one, took a couple of seconds.

    32 feet per second per second, Doesn’t matter how many times people try, it doesn’t change.

    Shame about the motorcycle!
