Just watched the clip and I was wondering they have him climbing out, well sitting in the door and there is no camera man out side the plane and then they cut back and there is the camera man out on the step. Were 2 jumps done or did the camera man climb out afterwards? :?

Nice clip though :stetson:

I know that there is another air craft filming it, but on the plane with the tandem in there is no camera man out side and then there is, and both times they are above cloud, maybe there was another tandem on the lift or something.
