I know the expression "never say never," but I'm going to say never. If I go up in a plane, I want to come back down in that same plane.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

When I was in my 20's and 30's? Yes. I wanted to with my brother. Now that I'm in my 50's? Not so much. :)

of course..... nothing beats cheating death by jumping out of a perfectly good plane. I hear the high you get from the rush is better than anything you can take.
Did you hear the one about me being a punk?
Did you hear the one about me being a drunk?
Did you hear the one about me losing my nerve?
Or how I'm just another f**** sheep in the herd?
Did you hear the one about me giving a s***?
Cause if I ever did I don't remember it.

As any skydiver would tell you —— whoever said there was such a thing as a perfectly good airplane??

And to answer the question — yes, I have jumped from an airplane.  Back in my younger days I used to watch a TV show called "Ripcord" (starring Larry Pennell and Ken Curtis) and told myself that this looks neat and someday I'd have to try it.  About two decades later I signed up for a three-day course at a jump school in Omro WI.  Ended up making four static-line jumps and one free-fall.

Several times in the 1990s. All "tandem jumps". All over the Florida Keys.
We used to house sit for friends in Key West every summer in the 1990s,
and a sky dive jump was always on the annual "to do" list.

I always told myself I would take lessons and eventually free fall on my own,
but I never did.

I never have and always wanted to, and up until as recent as 5 years ago, I would have if the opportunity would have presented itself. Not so much now.

Only if the perfectly good airplane was about to crash, and I think someone would have to push me out.
