That's how the OSS operatives did it during the war.
Yup. But to have the privilege to reenact it is a rare opportunity.

I once stood at the threshold of open bomb bay doors but never considered taking that last step. I was aboard a more modern aircraft as an observer of sorts. Wore a harness, tehter, and as I recall I left claw marks in the aluminum where all will recall I didn't want to die!!!

If I ever did take up jumping, I would like to have this vintage experience.
