Taking it to the extreme: Parachute stack
This five-stack parachute formation was on March 4, 2012 for the first game of the NRL season at Eden Park.
Katrina Wallis, Paree De La Varis, Tony Chilcott, Dene Richardson and myself have about 16,000 jumps between us and some of us have been jumping for more than 30 years.
I was unfortunate enough to break my femur landing in the turbulent ground conditions that day. Stadiums are notoriously dangerous to parachute in to due to swirling winds and downdrafts - ask any goal kicker. It's not for the faint-hearted.
I made a few headlines but kept a low profile as was drugged up in hospital for two weeks.
I'm walking now and looking forward to my next jump, which all going well with healing will be in a few months.
