    Did you jump by yourself or with an instructor? What does it feel like when you're falling?

    With an instructor.

    The free fall part you just felt a lot of wind to your face and body, it sounded like screaming - felt a bit weird breathing as you can imagine (think sticking your head out the car window). After the free fall part and the shoot deployed, you have a period of complete weightlessness and that was probably the best part, it's such a surreal feeling. There was a slow descent over 5-10 minutes where you get to enjoy the view. I went just after sun rise and the view was stunning. I remember him guiding us through clouds etc so it really was such a unique experience.

    Before the sky dive, the 20 minute plane ride up 10,000 feet itself was an experienced itself :rofl:, when you've gone past the clouds and are still going, you do start getting a little nervous.

    I may go skydiving soon and wondered if anyone has done it or if you would do it? As I'm thinking about it now it sounds awesome but I can imagine when I get up there I will be paralysed by fear :lol:

    I would be strapped to an instructor who will pull the cord and control the parachute for me though. Would you do it?
    I ventured to do it once a while back and couldn't jump as was in severe pain in the plane - I was diagnosed with eustachian tube dysfunction on my return to Earth and visiting Doc...

    Good luck though and may the Force be with you

    I bet that was amazing! What a view you would have had.

    If I do it it'll be in the UK though but I'm sure it will be just as fun
