Transcript for GoPro Cameras Capture Ginger Zee's Skydive From 13,000 feet
Okay. The door's open. Are you guys ready for this? Go ahead. It's all on you, ginger. If you're ready to go, go ahead. She's ready to go. We love you, ginger. Oh, my gosh. Ginger, be careful. She's going to love this. Oh, my god. Here we go. ? Oh, my gosh. Flying right now. Oh. Oh, gosh. She is great. Andrew Nickles, team leaders of the U.S. Army skydivers is with us in the studio. She can not talk. She's a little busy. She can smile real big. But she can't hear. How fast is she going, Angela? Once at terminal velocity, going 120 miles per hour. All of that in her face? What does it feel like? It was like a lot of wind. But almost like you're floating. It's an exhilarating, yet calming feeling. The chute just opened up. Do you feel like you're floating or falling? Floating. Floating. You're so high that 130 -- yeah, it's so high that the vus visual cues aren't there. Good sign. The chute is up. This is a great sign. This is the safest -- The U.S. Army team is the safest people. How does it feel? It feels amazing. I can see you. I can see all of the ocean here. It is so gorgeous and I feel very comfortable. Of course she does. It is so pretty up there. It is so -- it's so serene, too. Once that chute goes, and your mouth stops doing one of those things, it's just -- I mean, you have to take it all in. Every moment. I could do this for longer than I know that we are. Because it is so awesome. What did it feel like when you first jumped out the plane, though, before the chute opened? That's not as comfortable. That's, like -- like the wind in the face. The 120 miles per hour makes all your orifices open. Oh. It's a very, very strange feeling. Yes. Yeah, I know. Here we go. And now the turning. We're going to turn around here a little bit so hopefully you can see. But, boy, that adrenaline rush of just the moment before you see. You see all the land under you. Two miles up. Unbelievable what these guys do. Thank you for keeping me safe. Are you as calm, ginger, as you sound? Is your heart racing? Do you have any fear about this at all? I was kind of half dead, I think. No, I feel amazing. This is -- I definitely have some fear in me. Especially for that first -- the initial jump out. But now it's like nothing. Now I feel like the world is mine. It's all of ours because you're experiencing it with me. That's the coolest part of doing this. Here we are two miles up jumping. And it's the first time so many people are experiencing it. I think Ya'll should do it. Thank you for helping us experience it. And ask Angela here with the U.S. Army skydivers. Who is she with? This is the tandem team specifically. Sergeant first class Noah Watts is who she is jumping with. Has done 2,000 tandems, 5,000 free fall jumps. That's what I'm nervous about. Can landings vary dramatically based on trajectory and all that? It can be. It's a lot weather-dependent. If it's windy, they're going slower. If it's no wind and it's hot, go faster. But the canopy itself is a lot calmer. And the landing is smooth. She is in good hands. She is in the best hands possible. Noah, how did our girl ginger Co? She did great. She is army strong today. Army strong. She always is. That's why we love her. That's awesome. And I love when you said weather. Now we have a meteorologist with him. Yes. You know, a meteorologist and a jumper. It's like, he's not used to live TV, but I've done live TV 2,000 times. He's jumped. So we're in good shape. But as a meteorologist. You guys can listen along if you like. All right, ginger, for the landing, knees up. When I say knees up, place your hands underneath your knees. When I say feet out, put your feet all the way out. Keep your legs up and out like that. Nice and smooth. If I say stand, place your feet down. Make yourself feel like you're sitting up in a chair with maybe taking one or two steps. I'm going to steer now. Yes, sir. Oh, my goodness. Okay. My heart's racing. I'm going to say that now. We're getting into the close moment. This is the moment before -- On the ground 40 seconds. 20 seconds. Getting close to the ground, you have to really focus. You need to focus. This part is very important. It is easy to roll an ankle. More severe. But that will not happen. As I said, we are highly-trained. Noah knows what he's doing. Knees up! Knees up. Good luck. Thank you. Are you nervous? Knees are up. Pi' feeling safe. E looks like he goes from up here riglegos from up here. Get your legs out, out, out. Oh, gosh. Oh, my gosh. Perfect. Oh. Wow. What an spent experience. Thank you, Angela. Me and my friend, Noah. That's awesome. We're still connected. We're still connected. That's okay. We'll stay connected for a while. I owe you one. Don't you worry about that. We all owe Noah one. Hey, guys -- I got to -- hey. Oh! And all the way down. The first 10,000 feet, and then on the ground we lose stream. Anyway, she's back. Denise says she's back. What do you want to say, ginger? I think she was going to tell you all that you should also try this. I think that's it. I was the one who pulled the plug on that. George. And what did you want to say there, ginger? Whenever we do anything in the army worth recognition, we get a certificate worthy of framing. Being army strong, going through the train. And just giving it your all is nothing short that have. On behalf of the golden knights and U.S. Army, thank you for the support you give us and all the service members. Thank you for everything you do. You can lie to people and say that picture right there is us. All right? So awesome job. Thank you for everything you guys do. And being army strong. Thank you guy and all you do. Everyone out there and everything you do every single day. Thank you. I will keep this and cherish this forever. I'm bringing this home to, everybody. Yeah. That was tremendous. That landing was a perfect ten. Amazing. Really was. So, I mean, sergeant Angela, I hope you were joking when you said that we should -- I'm not joking. Some people want to know, what is the fascination? Why do we want to do this? I would say it's thrill-seeking, but as I said, the calming -- I can't describe how your heart's beating so fast yet it's calming and free all at the same time. I know when my team and myself go for a period of time when we haven't jumped, it's like an itch. You need it to calm myself down. It's scratching an itch for you? Yes. That's incredible. Do you get nervous? I get nervous competing in competition. We represent the army all across the United States and internationally as well. So that's when I do get nervous. When it's competition time. Hey, ginger. Yes. We're about to go off. Do you have anything more you want to say about how great this experience was? It was incredible. It was amazing. It was every single word that we can use to describe that feeling. Adrenaline's pumping. I don't think I would want to do anythilse with my life. Let's do it. Thank you very sharing that with us. Sergeant, thank you. You have your team here in the studio. Don't leave home without them. There they are. A joy to see all that. Your reward, Garth brooks. A very special big live
