“This belongs in Ripley's Believe It Or Not! On July 26, 1959, Lieutenant Colonel William H. Rankin of the United States Marine Corps, experienced the longest possible descent! He ejected from his Nought F8U Crusader at a height of 47,000 feet. As he fell into violent thunderstorms, he was time and time again thrown up by vertical air currents! He came safely back to earth in North Carolina 40 minutes after he left his sick aircraft!”
