The Jackass Of The Year, 2009

By Wyatt Earp | November 3, 2009

Pilatus PC-7 Mk IIIf the voting has not yet ended, it might be time to close the ballot box. This tool runs away with the prize.

Imagine you get the chance to fly in a jet with your friend, an Air Force pilot. You’re excited and scared at the same time. Then, when the ride gets a little rough, you reach down and accidentally grab . . .

A passenger enjoying a civilian joyride accidentally cut the trip short when he ejected himself from the plane after grabbing the eject lever while trying to brace himself.

He was instantly blasted 320-feet into the sky by the rocket-powered chair, before floating to the ground with an automatic parachute, the paper reported.

Air Force officers quickly deployed a helicopter to retrieve the passenger after his fall 80 miles south of Cape Town, South Africa. (H/TFOXNews)

Much the Charles Darwin’s chagrin, the parachute opened, and this moron safely floated down to Earth.

    Looks like the crew chief skipped a step in this guy’s preflight briefing.

    I laughed so hard when I read about this guy. I’m sure his ex-friend, the pilot, isn’t too happy with him.

    Sounds like he should run for public office.

    In a situation like that, you have to be careful about what lever you pull.

    That poor pilot…. OMG… I can’t even immagine how the rest of his day went.

    Murphy was an optimist compared to this guy.

    John D – Yeah, a pretty big step.

    AJ – Which one? Th pilot or the passenger.

    Robin – No, he probably crossed him off his Christmas card list.

    MeToo – Perfect candidate for a Massachusetts position.

    Mrs. Crankipants – Ya think?

    RAPH – Schnell!

    Sully – It couldn’t have gotten much worse.
