July 2006 – Diana Blackburn. Skydive #1318 for me was in Lodi, California out of a DC99 airplane. This is Bill Dause’s dropzone. This was when skydiving in Lodi was really fun! Wyat and I were passing through on one of our many road trips. We were just going to do a 2 way freefly jump. In the airplane on the ride up to altitude we decided to make it a 5 way freefly jump. Wyat flew outside video and stills.

We planned the jump in the airplane. I was to fly base in a stand flying position. When you fly “base” on a skydive it means you fall at a steady fall rate not moving side to side or up and down. MX Bill Halsey and Mike Knight docked on me for a really sweet freefly round. It was so cool because we were in all the freeflying positions. I was standflying, MX was sit flying and Mike was head down. This was a really awesome and fun random throw together at the last minute skydive! Remember – we’re falling towards the earth at about 170mph! I’m the original Swoop Girl.

Wyat shot the video with a Sony DCR-PC5 with a wide angle fisheye lens. After this skydive, Wyat and I continued on the road again.


My name is Diana Blackburn (aka Daredevil Girl, aka Swoop Girl). This is my YouTube channel, Daredevil Girl. I’m a relatively new youtuber. I’ve been very adventurous my entire life. In fact when I was a kid I wanted to be a stuntwoman. I’m pretty sure that ever since I was born (in 1977) I knew that I wanted to fly. I’ve had dreams of flying ever since I can remember remembering. This has led me to a living a life of no fear, going on adventures and loving anything sports and extreme!

I upload many different kinds of videos to my channel every week. Many of these videos are from over ten years ago from my travels and road trips with my late fiancé Wyat Drewes. Wyat stole my heart. I loved him very much. I met Wyat in 2001 when I was a beginner skydiver. In 2003 we got engaged when he proposed to me at the bottom of a 1,700 ft waterfall on Maui. Wyat died in a motorcycle accident August 10, 2007 in San Diego, California. I miss him terribly every day. He was my best friend and a kindred spirit. I only date women now, Emily my girlfriend, exclusively. Sorry guys, I’m happily a lesbian.

I have a variety of original content. Videos you will see on my channel are mostly of me on adventures and doing things such as skydiving, speed flying, ground launching, paragliding, shark diving, snorkeling, base jumping, swooping, canopy piloting, skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, speed riding, parkour, free running, getting tattoos, cliff diving, jumping off roofs, jumping off piers, zorbing, jumping off waterfalls, Hawaii travel, boxing, fighting, arm wrestling, knife wielding, shooting guns (shotgun is my favorite), punching bag, MMA, working out, doing push ups, doing hand stands, swimming, rock climbing, bouldering, rappelling, fishing, whitewater river rafting, hiking, camping, landscaping, zip lining, stand up paddle boarding (SUP), slam dancing and partying. I love to jump out of airplanes, but I REALLY love to jump out of helicopters!

I post a lot of cute and funny cat and kitten videos as well as videos of dogs, raccoons and other animals. Sometimes I post funny cute babies and kids. I also post videos of cooking, baking tips and survival tips. I post videos of my musician friends playing drums, guitars and singing (when they let me).

So come and check out more of this female daredevil in action. I hope you enjoy the show! If you do, please subscribe to my channel. Thank you YouTube fans and subscribers. I love you!
