Skydivers Narrowly Avoid Falling Plane
Skydivers have a very near death experience as the plane they jumped out of comes falling toward them.
Footage of a tandem skydive gone very nearly wrong has surfaced. It shows a woman and her instructor Forest Pullman jump from a plane on October 19 over Pattaya, Thailand.
The plane, the pair had moments before jumped from, is seen in a downward nose dive narrowly missing them…and we are talking NARROWLY! The plane actually clipped the drogue chute. This is the little chute that can be seen in the footage. Lucky this chute didn't catch on the plane as it went past.
This picture shows how close the planes wing came to killing them.

It is not known why the plane did this. Mr Pullman said:
"After an uneventful exit the pilot dove the airplane 180 degrees right at me and my tandem passenger. How did we get so lucky? Not sure.
"I have never heard of this happening. After some research and talking to friends about it I now know of two other incidents like this.
