Austria`s President, 73, jumps from plane
Vienna: Austria`s president was in free fall and no, it was not about a loss in popularity.
President Heinz Fischer`s office has released a video of the 73-year-old head of state jumping in tandem from a military helicopter and dangling from a parachute after what his office says was a 50-second free fall before safely
The jump took place in September during a military exercise, and Fischer, the commander-in-chief of Austria`s military clearly enjoyed it.
"My view of Austria from 3,800 meters (nearly 12,500 feet) took my breath away and our soldiers ... are really great guys," he told today`s edition of the weekly News.
