Definately worth checking 4OD to see if that Bear programme is still on there.  Well worth a watch, regardless of what you think of him it would still take some swingers to go to that altitude with a oscilating fan and carrier bag straped to your back :D

Yeah. Was the only program of his that I enjoyed watching.

He went so high that his altimeter went off the scale, so he never found out what his ceiling height actually was.

Well worth watching again.

Don't know if I would have the nerve to try something like that though................. :o
