It really happened - I have evidence.
My first jump was at the viaduc de la souleuvre in Normandie in France in September 1992 - (200ft). The jump was with A.J.Hackett.
Less salubrious. From a crane on Newcastle Town Moor. It was for charity, but they didn't have the right equipment. In the end they had to use two harnesses on me and I jumped with six ropes in parallel to ensure no contact was made with the ground.
