Luke Aikins and Andy Farrington attempted to Plane Swap mid-air for the first time.
Experienced skydivers and pilots Luke Aikins and Andy Farrington attempted a feat 10-years in the making, to become the first pilots to swap planes unassisted.
The feat was partially accomplished, with Aikins successfully swapping planes and landing his aircraft in the Arizona desert. Farrington, a skilled skydiver was unable to enter the plane he was approaching. He skydived into a safe landing. The second plane’s safety mechanisms activated but the plane was damaged.
Neither Aikins or Farrington, nor anybody else, was injured.
