Well, from earh to plane is new, isnt it? And it is a landing in to a plane still packed! So if it is not a landing, you will might call it docking?

Utilizing a customary NPS lingo, this is "Authorized Aerial Recovery".

Patrick flew a wingsuit back into a Porter in the late 90's. Granted, not off a cliff, but think how relatively crappy his suit must have been and the state of knowledge.

I know most of the history from the 80'ies and up to date, and are awere of how much it is takes to achieve a first like that. His suit was not crappy, it was high tech for the time being, as for every one who daring trying a first, and succeed.

The earth is "flying" at about 67,000 miles per hour (unless you are Johnny Utah)

Flying: to float, flutter or to move through the AIR.
No air in space so earth is not flying.
Landing: to bring to or set on LAND (land: any part of the earth's surface not covered by a body of water; the part of the earth's surface occupied by continents and islands)
Plane is not a land so this is not landing.
And even if Deug's wingsuit was at the top in 97, it was nothing close to a Freak2 in term of performance. Probably closer to a Phantom.
Anyway, nice job Frenchies!
