Murray broke many bones, knocked out almost all her teeth, but remained conscious due to the fact that she received hundreds of poisonous ant bites, this contributed to a large release of adrenaline, as a result of which doctors managed to resuscitate her, after several years of treatment and physical recovery, Joan returned to normal life and continued skydiving.”

If they saw the news that day they could tell you the day’s headlines. It’s an exhausting condition to have.

“Only two people have ever flown the XF-84H Thunderscreech.

Theoretically it was the fastest propeller-driven airplane ever built; it could have attained a speed above 1000km/h, but was so difficult to fly that it was never taken above roughly 840km/h in testing. At the very least it was the *loudest* propeller-driven airplane ever built, due to its supersonic propeller tips. One of the test pilots made a single flight and was so terrified at the plane’s handling that he refused to ever set foot in the cockpit again. The other test pilot made 11 flights for a total of 12 test flights before the project was canceled. Thankfully the plane didn’t manage to actually kill either of the people who flew it, making it statistically safer than a Boeing 737.”
