The feeling of failure

This was when I realized I was totally screwed at the flying dagger. A typhoon had hit off the coast of Hong Kong sending massive ripple effects towards my location. I was given 5 days to train with a helicopter and the weather only cleared up the day before. I got two practice jumps but needed at least 10. My couple of practice flights just showed me how screwed I was. On the day of the stunt the weather was the worst we had seen and we couldn’t even see the mountain most of the day. It was just covered in fog. This was when I knew we had failed and the project just wasn’t going to happen. About, 30 minutes later I jumped from the helicopter and successfully flew through the Flying Dagger. If you had told me at the moment this picture was taken that we were going to be successful I would have told you to stop smoking crack...
