Before space jump, Felix made a parachute jump in Antalya

Felix makes historical jump. With preliminary data: 1st to break the speed of sound in freefall and several other records. 

“It was an incredible up and down today, just like it’s been with the whole project. First we got off with a beautiful launch and then we had a bit of drama with a power supply issue to my visor.” Felix Baumgartner describes his record breaking jump from the stratosphere.

Felix Space Jump

Felix Baumgartner earned his place in the history books on Sunday after overcoming concerns with the power for his visor heater that impaired his vision and nearly jeopardized the mission. Felix reached an estimated speed of *833.9 mph / 1,342.8 km/h (Mach 1.24). This preliminary figure would make him the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall and set more records* while delivering valuable data for space exploration.
After reaching an altitude of 128,100 feet (39,045 meters) in a helium-filled balloon, Felix Baumgartner completed a record breaking jump from the edge of space, exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier flying in an experimental rocket powered airplane. The 43-year-old Austrian skydiving expert also broke two other world records (highest freefall, highest manned balloon flight), leaving the longest freefall to project mentor Col. Joe Kittinger.

Felix jumped out of an airplane to an altitude of 1400 to Konyaalti district of Antalya

Before space jump, Felix Baumgartner made a parachute jump 6 years ago in Antalya in Turkey.

In 2006, Felix came to Antalya within the scope of races of "The Art of the Cart", and jumped out of an airplane to an altitude of 1400 to Konyaalti district of Antalya.

Baumgartner made ​​a statement after the jump, "Antalya beaches are incredibly beautiful," he said.
