Semi trucks aren’t meant to fly, but that hasn’t stopped Australian stuntman/daredevil/lunatic Ash Nichols setting the distance record at 101.9 feet. Nichols used a supercross-style tabletop jump at the Loveday 4×4 Adventure Park in Barmera, Australia, to perform this stunt in his Ford LTL big rig.

As if flying in a semi isn’t hard enough, there’s also the landing. In this record-breaking jump, Nichols stuck the landing flawlessly, but another video shot a few months prior to this attempt shows Nichols coming up a few feet short, which results in a violent impact. The older video also gives us a look inside the truck for a better idea of which modifications Nichols made to the truck for safety.
