Sensational Death-Defying Human Rocket in a Leap
From Dizzy Heights Over the Gulf of Mexico at
Del Mar Beach
SUNDAY EVENING

ER PERFORMED
ANYWHERE
W. G. Swan, tty* Human Rocket, will be taken in an
airplane to an altitude of 10,000 feet when he will
make his stupendous leap into space. While de
scending on the first lap of his drop he will set off
hundreds of beautiful colored explosive bombs.

While swinging from A^rapeze attached to the
first parachute Mr. Swan makes fns preparations for
the final and most dangerous part of his descent to
the beach—or perhaps into the salty waters of the
Gulf of Mexico—without the aid of his parachute
until a few hundred feet from the earth.
After dropping 1,000 feet he will release him
self from the first parachute and drop another 7,000
feet without the aid of the parachute.
During the 7,000-foot drop Mr. Swan literally
becomes a flaming human rocket. This is a most
daring leap under ordinary conditions. But with
the addition of the exploding rockets the downward
descent is terrifically increased, making it one of the
most dangerous feats ever performed in midair. The
parachute is used only for landing purposes when
near the earth or water, as the case may be.
Mr, Swan Is Internationally
Known As a Datng,
Fearless Sky-Deul
Mr. Swan is internatioiil ly
known as one of the most dling
scientific sky-devils, timing ind
controlling himself while ing
propelled through space wit the
aid of exploding rockets.
