He died doing what he loved :( something stupid and pointless

As he respectfully mashes the flag into the dirt.

It's going to cut North Dakota's population by 1/3

So he didn't buy the farm?

Sure glad the state as plenty of room in the ICU.

This can't be covered by regular insurance... should be like satellite launch insurance: if you want $17,000,000 in insurance - it costs $17,000,000.

I bet country gravy was splattered everywhere.

Well, to be fair, he's the Flying Farmer, not the Landing Farmer.

Wherever there is an idiot willing to due something extremely stupid, endangering his life, there are a bunch of other idiots willing to pay to see him do it.

Smith's previous jump was in 2016, when he rose over towering flames to clear a burning trailer.

He's just out of practice.

Used to be that name was reserved for idiots taking chances in airplanes, dammit!

It's a good thing he's The Flying Farmer though. If he was The Flying Dutchman, he'd have never been able to hit land.

I just want to say, "great photo!"

The "Flying Farmer" does know what happened to Evil, doesn't he?

This was like that flat earther that Wile E Coyote dirt-poofed himself in the desert. Only one way it was gonna end.

I was going to say that if he was going to fly planes, he might have been better at it if he had just been the Flying Pilot, but I like yours better.

Flying: best done in small planes.

Motorcycles: run best with tires on pavement.

Farmers: better when they drive and fix tractors, best stick to fishin and huntin on weekends.

corkscrewed off the jump? Could that have to do with the fact that he was 400lbs and on one side of the car with no balance of weight?

I was in a large business meeting once and the senior female presenter talked about how we should plough our own furrows, and none of the people under 40 had any idea what she meant. Most thought it was a euphemism for something sexual.
