Bonkers Skydiving Stunt Tomorrow Morning

from Notify NYCJust in from Notify NYC (which could certainly give more warning about this stuff)….

The Red Bull Air Force Dive Team will conduct a film shoot (weather permitting) over the Hudson River near Governors Island and Battery Park City, Manhattan on Saturday, May 17, between 6 AM and 9 AM. The event will consist of five members of the dive team exiting one Cessna 208 aircraft at an altitude of approximately 7,500 feet, and landing on a barge situated on the Hudson River (just north of Battery Park City’s North Cove Marina), while being filmed by an AS355 Helicopter. The U.S. Coast Guard will provide a safety zone in the river for this activity.

If postponed due to inclement weather, this activity will be held on Sunday, May 18, during the same time frame.

Obviously I’d like to see photos, if you take any!

UPDATE: Thanks very much to Jessica Scarpelli, who sent over these pix.
