Empire State Base Jump | Mike McCarthy | 565 RLD Para Sigs

In 1986, following active service in the Falklands War, former 565 RLD parachute signaller Mike R.P. McCarthy launched an audacious plan to be the first person to base jump from the Empire State building.

Transcript snippet from ‘Empire State Base Jump | Mike McCarthy | 565 RLD Para Sigs’ podcast

Chris and Mike

C – Mike, how are you brother?

M – Excellent, excellent Chris thank you and thank you for having me on for the chat.

C – Wow, thank you for joining us. I always like a man with a bookcase behind him. Says a lot about you.

M – Lot of cook books!

C – Haha, I thought you were going to say 1984, Brave New World and Wild Swans.

M –  They’re in the other room.

C – More importantly did you come tooled up?  (Chris shows Micheal a primary colour water pistol!)

M – Yes I did, I’ve got my NERF gun. When you’ve got a son in the house you have to be properly prepared. Like a leopard crawling around the house, clearing rooms. He interrogates me from time to time.
