This is the plane they just jumped out of that nearly hits them and which would absolutely have killed them. From the description:
After an uneventful exit…. The pilot dove the airplane 180 degrees right at me and my tandem passenger. how we got so lucky?!?! Not sure.
I have never heard of this happening. After some research and talking to friends about it I now know of two other incidents like this. One is on you tube and he did not get as lucky as we did….
And here’s a slomo gif of the moment when they realized that they might be in a lot of trouble.
Both landed safely, if only just barely.
