The 1st time, I’ve seen a glider plane was in the Pierce Brosnan 1999 movie – The Thomas Crown Affair. Those scenes piqued my interest for the experience if I ever had the opportunity.
It’s the only SkyJump in North America and the highest in the world. SkyJump is a controlled free fall, similar to a vertical zip line. The launching pad is located on the 108th floor of Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas, 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. Jumpers are harnessed in and attached to a cable that is connected to a descender machine. Guide wires keep the skyjumper on course and on target. I take the leap!
Did you get your interest in archaeology from movies like Indiana Jones… raising your curiosity about history and exploration? History geek or not (as I am quite honestly not a history buff), a visit to the Italy’s lost city of Pompeii should be on your list.
