"OMG! OMG! OMG! I have just left a plane, a perfectly good plane. I am doing a forward somersault followed by a right shoulder roll and then miraculously we straighten out…….I opened my eyes.

"The ground is 3 miles below me and the view is spectacular. This is no rollercoaster rush, no leaving the stomach behind, just lying flat with a 120 m.p.h. wind blowing past.

One minute later, 60 long, very long, seconds and 2 miles of freefall, looking around, rotating to see different views and then the parachute opens. 

"All is suddenly and completely silent as we float gently down. We are still a mile up, so lots of time to look around. And it is so very, very, peaceful. I saw a rainbow from above, circular and with our shadow on it, rare apparently but wow!

"Totally amazing! Would I do it again, oh yes!"
