... singer James Blunt is hoping for a musical high when he performs on a plane flying over Britain.
The singer is aiming for the world record for the highest-ever live gig.

Blunt will perform for 150 competition winners on board a Boeing 757 on Tuesday, as part of a event organized by UK radio station Heart FM.

The Great Gig in the Sky will take place at 41,000 feet (12,424 metres).

Or maybe just one Blunt-sized parachute  :)


[Jumping from 41,000 feet oxygen masks will also be required].

"150 parachutes required" 

Hmmm, isn't that a translation of the title of a very annoying song by a German group?

I like that song.............

You only need one parachute, possibly 2. One for the pilot and copilot.

There only was one time I really wanted to jump out of a plane with a parachute, but both the copilot and I were leaning out the door, saying that the gear looked down and locked.....

Was her name Nina? You could plat her armpit hair if I remember properly. Neil Kinnock used to stand under one of her arms in order to look like he had a luxutiant head of hair.

I don't think I've had the pleasure or otherwise of MR Blunt. I'm sure his Mum loves him.

So he is a gay love child. He probably has a big chip on his shoulder then.
