What is the best strategy to survive a free fall naked out of a jetliner at cruising altitude (ignoring temperature)?
For instance, my strategy would be to streamline my fall so that my terminal velocity was very high. Then at some critical distance above the ground I would pitch upward and attempt to use my forward velocity to achieve lift. Presumably this would slow my fall to some survivable speed. (This is roughly what the space shuttle does after all.)
Would it work? And idea if it would be survivable?
