Not sure if i’ll ever find myself in this situation though I have to say the operation as a whole really is amazing.
Well rehearsed and went exactly to plan and can’t help but be impressed with this, great to see Matt making it out unharmed and what a great job all these servicemen did and do.
I saw the GIF of the C130 above the forest and I had flash backs to getting lectured on what to do in the case of a tree landing after jumping out of one. Also what to do if the C130 you are in is getting ready to crash and you have a parachute on. Which is Jump out and let the Air Force guys deal with the crash.
It was successful, I think. It was developed by Jaguar’s racing arm, and as such lived up to its billing as a race car you could drive on the street (in the UK, at least) if you wanted. It complied with Group C regs, in general, so it satisfied a niche market of buyers who wanted a Le Mans-style Jaguar for the road…
