That was fantastic. Any chance to see the Craig Breedlove crash footage where he walks away without a scratch is awesome.

Intersting choice of camera angle at 7:20 in the second clip... I guess they wanted to document the exact moment when he crapped his pants.

Awesome Ryan! I was just a kid when Breedlove was doing his thing. He was the man in that rocket. I used to build airplane models and clip off the wings to resemble Spirit of America.

Got a total flashback when I saw those Marine World (Redwood City) boats. We used to go there as kids to see that and the waterskiing... Very, very cool.

Great footage Doc, although I'm sure that some of those "bingles" didn't end well!
