lunaticsdaredevils are going to swap aircraft in mid-air.
So, apparently the stunt was a half success. I couldn’t tell from the original story whether or not they’d have parachutes (though if not, that seemed totally nuts), but apparently they did, which is why the pilot survived the failed attempt.
And really, FAA? Who are you to decide what is in the public interest, and whether or not someone should be allowed to do something even if you think it isn’t? I thought this was America.
