Mayor Tom Tate has landed safely back on solid ground, after leaping out of a plane this morning!
Sick of ribbon cutting ceremonies, the Gold Coast Mayor decided to launch next week's World Parachuting Championships in style, by having a go himself.
The Mayor's plane took off around 7am, before Cr Tate jumped out and landed at Kirra Beach around 7:30.
He said it was real rush.
"Beautiful view, my adrenaline's pumping, I reckon I dropped a few pounds," he said.
The FAI World Parachuting Championships are being held on the Gold Coast from October 7-13.
