After jumping out of a plane from 25,000 feet with no parachute or wing suit, a world-class skydiver hit his mark by landing safely in a net.

Luke Aikins was greeted by family and friends who witnessed him make history. The 42-year-old husband and father immediately hugged his wife.

The historic feat by the third-generation skydiver took place in the Southern California desert of Simi Valley and was broadcast live on Fox.

Aikins has over 18,000 jumps and has performed a variety of skydiving stunts.

“I pushed myself further physically and mentally than ever before,” said Aikins, who practiced the dive, called ‘Heaven Sent’, using an even smaller net.

“I had to prove that it could be done.”

In the amazing aerial footage below, you can see Aikins practicing his landing move, flipping over on his back, in mid-air.
