Yesterday 42-year-old British stuntman Gary Connery became the first person to ever skydive without a parachute, jumping out of a helicopter at 2,400 feet wearing only a wingsuit and landing on a strip of cardboard boxes less than a minute later. The video above was captured by a jumper behind Connery who was wearing a helmet-cam to document the historic (and nail-biting) jump. It’s a crazy perspective that shows just how little room for error Connery had.
Here’s what the landing looked like from the ground:
