Did you know?Lt. Col William Rankin is the only person known to have parachuted through a thunderstorm. Due to a problem with his F-8 Crusader, he was forced to eject at 47,000 ft (14,325 meters) and at a speed of Mach .82 (624 mph or 1004 km/h) - right in the middle of a thunderstorm. Conditions in the thunderstorm were horrendous with temperatures of -50° C / -58° F and violent updrafts and lighting. The barometric switch that deploys the parachute automatically had been fooled by the violent weather conditions and deployed the parachute early instead of the much lower 10,000 ft. By the time he had descended enough to be clear of the thunderstorm, 40 minutes had passed since he ejected.
