Watch This Amazing GoPro Footage Of An Army Paratrooper Jumping Out Of A C-130

Would you have the guts?

At some point we’ve all wondered what it’s like to jump out of an airplane and probably thought something like, “Oh yeah, I could do that.” When you’re a U.S. Army paratrooper standing in the doorway of a C-130 Hercules transport plane and the captain starts the countdown, you don’t get to think about it. You’ve just gotta jump. 

So we thank you, Sgt. Dillon Heyliger, for capturing this drill on a GoPro and showing all of us what it’s really like to make that harrowing leap down to earth. It helped us come to an important realization: maybe we couldn’t do that after all.
