Skydivers nearly cut in half by plane in Thailand

Near death airplane collision with skydiver in free fall (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce_sAXKk4QA#)

A SKYDIVING instructor who was nearly cut in half by a free-falling plane has posted terrifying video footage of the near-death jump online.

Just as he had done many times before, Forest Pullman and his female passenger jumped out of the plane above Pattaya in Thailand.

But rather than continue to fly straight, the plane nosedived after the pair had jumped, missing them by metres and clipping their drogue chute instead.

Mr Pullman posted the video with the accompanying caption: “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,” he said.

The plane is believed to be registered with Thai Sky A, a professional sky diving service based in Pattaya.
