3 Failed Attempts + Entanglements = Messy Mr. Bill

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

Two relatively new skydivers (150 jumps) try several attempts at a Mr. Bill exit from a helicopter at 4500 feet, with each attempt turning out worse than the previous. It’s never a good thing when your bridle wraps around a GoPro, arm and/or leg. No bueno.

I’m no Mr. Bill expert, but I do know that pitching your pilot chute with your back towards the relative wind won’t improve your odds for a successful Mr. Bill.

Have you ever tried a Mr. Bill? If so, how did it go? Let us know in the comments.

Huge thanks to these skydivers for having the courage and humility to share this footage so that others can learn from their mistakes.
