ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — A skydiver is preparing for a record-breaking plunge over New Mexico Sunday.
Extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner hopes no more last-minute cancellations will thwart his attempt to be the first skydiver in history to break the sound barrier.
The former Austrian paratrooper's team set Sunday morning as the new date for the jump.
The jump was postponed on Monday and Tuesday because of unexpected winds.
On Saturday, the weather forecast seemed favorable and there were no signs from the team early Sunday of any changes.
If successful, "Fearless Felix" will break a 52-year-old altitude record by Joe Kittinger, who jumped from 19.5 miles and reached a speed of 614 mph, just under the sound barrier.
