Today stunts are much safer than the ones back on 1970’s. Today we have all the help we need of the modern technology like computer simulation, computer graphics, unique camera equipment and all kinds of safety technology! Today men jumps from an airplane without parachute and manages to survive… with the help of the technology!
Back in the days car stunts were way more dangerous. American daredevil Kenny Powers back in 1976 attempted one of the most ridiculous stunts known to humankind!
Originally the idea of jumping across the border of Canada and United states was not Kenny’s. Ken Carter a Canadian stuntman first had this idea, this dream to jump over the borders in a rocket powered car with wings and everything! Ken spent couple of years planning this crazy stunt and once he finally finished all the preparation and it was time for “action” Ken lost his nerve and Kenny Powers made the jump!
