A skydiver lost his shoe during a jump, but miraculously retrieved it in mid-air, and the whole thing was captured on video.
The guy who runs Skydive Garage’s Youtube account recently attempted a “Mr. Bill” skydive stunt, wherein two skydivers hold on to each other, but only one of them deploys a parachute; from there, his partner can either jump at a lower altitude or cling on for dear life and land with the deployed chute.
It’s a tricky move in the best of times, but as you’ll see in the video, one diver’s shoe gets pulled off by mistake. Instead of just letting it go, he steers himself around via parachute until he can catch the shoe mid-dive. It’s a stunt worthy of a James Bond movie.
Check out the full video (set to a weird remix of Elvis Presley‘s “Blue Suede Shoes”) below.
