Franz Reichelt

The Franz Reichelt Night Thread (June 26, 2022)

Tonight’s thread is dedicated to the Flying Tailor Franz Reichelt, who was very unsuccessful at proving his home-made parachute-suit worked, but was successful in becoming the first person to have their death recorded on camera, when he jumped from the Eiffel Tower on February the 4th, 1912.
