Holy Shit :| ……
that is unreal
that's insane it doesn't even look like he's going to make it
can i say…. big?
> can i say…. big?
no but you can super insanely massive!
Wow. I wonder if that was shot for a vid.
Neil was shooting video. I have no idea if it made it into a SuperHeros vid or not. Capturing the scale of the thing on video was difficult. Standing on the top of the takeoff lip, the landing seemed to be in another state.. But on video it looked like your average 30 footer. You have to see my photo of Gareth on this set to really get an idea of the size.
There was some question of who "owned" the shoot, which is why we (at NSMB) couldn't publish the photos back when it happened…
This is actually Wade's second jump. On the first he got the nose up bad, almost dead sailoring, and everyone gasped in mid-air thinking he was doomed. I even heard Kyle Strait's Dad gasp "oh no..". But on descent he somehow did the impossible and willed the front end down and brought it in for smooth landing. Sterling has an awesome, awesome shot from underneath that captures the intensity on Wade's face as he wrestles the front end down. Incredible.
As I mentioned in the shot with Thomas, Dave Watson actually hit this bad boy up first. One of most unreal things I've ever witnessed.
yes folks wade is a beast,
is he taking off from the first or the second takeoff if its the first, Im going to be so stunned…….

that simmons, hes so hot right now.
that was in superheros 2 or 3, I know it was in one of those I've seen it a bunch of times
who said wade was washed up :)
i think back in the day they published those photos on the mbaction magazine
That's unreal, it's true though, it does look quite a bit smaller on video (superheroes 3).
wow, i wonder how much he was second guessing himself on that
Not much at the point this pic was taken.
ya he cant really turn back at that time
wow that really big!!!
haha so big
wow that looks so freakin awsome!
Simmons is the best….period.
