    Damn!!! That is so cool!

    Reminds me of launching thermal glider models using bungee but that - well - adrenaline rush plus I reckon. Acceleration must be a real fix.

    Oh I wish I was young again - love to try that.

    Wow! They should make that a theme park ride. I'd give it a go. Probably just once, but it looks like one heck of a ride.

    Looks like fun.

    I'd never have the guts to do it, my luck, there would be a plane overhead.

    I wonder what the G-forces are from a launch like that?? It would also be interesting to know exactly how high he went. In any case, in terms of height, it's no more dangerous that cliff or bridge jumping..
    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the weaponry to make the difference.

    I'd have a heart attack just being launched, and then have to remember to pull shoot.
