Luke Aikins has made nearly 20,000 parachute jumps — but this one was like no other. The sky diver, who worked on the film “Iron Man 3,” jumped from an airplane without a parachute or a wingsuit Saturday as part of TV special called “Heaven Sent.”
Aikins jumped out of a plane flying 25,000 feet over Simi Valley. After two minutes of freefall, he became the first sky diver to safely land in a net, according to the Associated Press.
