Two pilots attempted to swap planes mid-air in Red Bull’s ‘Plane Swap’. One pilot, Luke Aikins, was successful and the second pilot Andy Farrington, was unable to enter the plane he was approaching. Both pilots landed safely and the plane’s safety mechanisms activated, but the plane was damaged.

Pushing boundaries

In an interview after the Plane Swap, Luke Aikins explained: “We proved it was possible, and we are pushing boundaries out here. What’s great is that I jumped from one to another, and landed safely. Andy landed safely in his parachute and all of our safety protocols worked.”
