Try not to do any skydiving while you cross the parking lot!

He's a righteous dude

Only takes about 60 seconds for your average skydive, plane to the ground.  Doesn't take that long for the plane to take them up - 9's doable pretty easily, if exhausting

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.

That's what she said!

Try not so dive out of a plane on your way to the parking lot.

No, all at once. He wore 9 parachutes.

Rare footage of his record breaking nontuple-jump.

He really wanted to yell at those clouds in person!

/also
//why does this parachute keep opening!?!?

Next year he's going to do it 9.1 times.

Unfortunate for him that doing only a tenth of a skydive tends to do bad things to your health.

If at first you don't succeed?  Try the outfield.

I suppose it gets easier each time, but sheesh. A friend and I did it just before my 40th birthday; I don't think I'll do it again.

He really, really wanted to do it 10 times. A nice even number. But the ninth time, the chute did not open :(

Turns out he kept shouting "nein! nein! NEIN!".

/  Poor German old guy...

I'm sure he wanted to die of a heart attack on the way down. Every 90 year old I've spoken to has said they've lived too long.

9 is doable if you have packers, planes on your schedule and extra rigs. The average jumper would be lucky to get 9 in doing everything himself.
