You'd get to experience exactly why it is called terminal velocity.

ETA - too slow! The descent was probably slower then huwshpis getting their almost identical comment in first!

If they can built that, why not install a lift?
Like Barrakka Lift in Malta? I recall riding the rickety contraption circa 1972 when HMS Antrim paid a port visit. Looked it up on interweb and was not surprised to read the original lift ceased operation in Feb 1973. Happy dayz...

@repoman, @SONAR-BENDER, you must have been on the Med trip in 1972!

I was on the Med trip, but missed Malta as I'd been flown back for an education course. I failed!
 
Nice new lift in operation now...visited Malta for first time since '74'. Did a Med cruise with the missus.....the 'Gut' is still there but unrecognisable.....
