Archived: 60 ft horse Jumping|First wing suit fail – Death Jump

Possibly the first ‘attempt’ of wing suit flying was captured on film in 1911, Franz Reichel’s ideas could probably have done with a bit of refining before jumping from the Eiffel Tower to his untimely death!!

And In the 1920s before anybody had even thought of snowboarding they were jumping horses into a pool of water from a 60ft platform in the USA.

These are just some of the strange/morbid delights that the British Pathe historic footage contains… If your keen on retro death and other weird things like Parachuting Dogs|Hiroshima|The Hindenburg|Warships exploding (Of course you are) then check [Here] to see more!!
