Stuntman Completes Evel Knievel’s Snake River Canyon Jump
Back in 1974, Evel Knievel tried to jump a steam-powered rocket 1,500 feet over the Snake River Canyon in Idaho and land on the other side with a parachute. He landed in the canyon instead.
Stuntman Eddie Braun tried it again on Friday with the same type of rocket and made it to the other side. Within four seconds, Braun's "Evel Spirit" rocket reached 430-mph, launching him 2,200 feet in the air.
The final distance that the rocket cleared was 4728.9 feet before it set down in a bean field. There are multiple angles of the jump, check it out:
