HALO TANDEM JUMP FOR GALILEO EXTREME - HARRO FÜLLGRABE
It was one of these moments what I would never forget!
I am a lucky person who could do already many great and exciting adventures for Galileo, but this HALO Jump was one of the most exciting stories of my career!
I remember the 'Voladores' in Mexico, the descendants of the Aztecs, who jump with a simple knotted rope at the body from a 15 meter high trunk backwards into the abyss, to the spectacular descent of the Colombian drug police 'Junglas' out of the helicopter and the 220 meter James Bond bungee jump at the Verzasca Dam in Switzerland .
These were also all unique experiences!
But now, this H.A.L.O. Jump!
The moment of the jump is pure adrenaline. First, you think: "No, I can't do this!" but then, you're already in the air. There is no way back!
This stunning two-minute free fall, overlooking the curvature of the earth and the deep abyss with a cloud cover is just fantastic!
And the second, in which then the parachute opens after a more than 2 minutes free fall, is for a "skydiver rookie" a very special delight!
Thanks, guys, that I could do this! And thanks to my HALO tandem master Mark Gerlach and Kevin Holbrook! Guys, you are great!
