VIDEO: Mid-Air Airplane Swap Fails, Plane Spirals Out OF Control.


An aerial stunt failed yesterday evening in Arizona. Pilots Luke Aikins and Andy Farrington had planned to swap planes, each man jumping out of a single-engine plane more than 12-thousand feet above the desert and skydiving to the other aircraft. Farrington made it, but Aikins did not, opening his parachute and landing unhurt.

The uncontrolled plane was equipped with a parachute that deployed before the plane touched the ground.

Below find video of the actual stunt and all the planning that went into it.
