On May 6, 2004 the big guy wearing the green shirt in the trailer of the movie landed about 300+- feet in front of me while I was kiting at the South Tower. If you see the movie when they focus on the water of where he landed you will see my lines (something only a kiter will pick up).
They also use footage of me kiting over to where I check to see if the guy is alive or dead. It is mixed in with footage they shot of kiting on other days around the bridge.

Being part of this movie was interesting and a makes me value who good I got it.

Like there's not already enough things to worry about when you're kiting at Chrissy; you have to worry about someone landing on your head, too.

It says 10M, but it's really a 9.
