    Joseph Kittinger reached 614 MPH in free fall jump on Aug 16, 1960 - not quite the speed of sound (770 MPH).

    I watched a show about Joseph Kittinger on the disco sci chan and the show claimed he broke the sounds barrier, I suppose they thought his jumping wasn't interesting enough so they had to bend the truth alittle....
