Gary Connery, 42,becomes the first person to ever land a skydive without a parachute.

He was wearing a specially designed wingsuit and made the jump from a helicopter at about 2,400ft high. His landing zone was a series of over 18,000 cardboard boxes 40ft wide and a runway of 350ft.

Below are some photos and video of the historic skydive.
