During the third Saturday in October each year, it's legal to parachute from The New River Gorge Bridge for a period of 6 hours. The NRGB spans U.S. Rt. 19 in Fayetteville, W. Virginia, 876 ft above the New River. It's a mere eightish seconds from the rail until impact in the river below. After time expires, all legal jumping ceases until next year's Bridge Day.
