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.

That's unreal, it's true though, it does look quite a bit smaller on video (superheroes 3).
