The feeling of falling is one most of us are familiar with – that millisecond when you're off your feet, but before you hit the ground.

Of course. few get to truly experience falling like a BASE jumper – who exit the earth anywhere from 100m to 1000m above the surface.

Watch the video below to see some (very) quickly approaching ground.

So what else can we say about the feeling of freefall? Well, we'd start with this: if you're going to jump, you'd better know where you going to land.
