Awesome Parachutes

Wind Turbine Base Jump

Wind Turbine Base Jump

The guys from BIT – BASE Inspired Travels climbed to the top of this abandoned wind turbine so they could jump off of it. The unusual Ferris wheel design of the windmill is just as interesting to look at as the brief 50-meter dive into the fog. We’d love to see footage of the climb, though.

Remember that scene in Transformers 2 with the parachute? No? We don’t blame you. Well as with most things, actually opening your chute too early is a bit more jarring in real life.  The goods are at the 27s mark.

Looking out the window and seeing grey skies and wintery temps? Even if you aren’t, you can still appreciate this short film of two guys paragliding in a variety of sunny places. (Thanks Michael!)

Igor Kuser was practicing spiral landings with a parachute. Someone told him to practice doing it over a lake. Now he knows why. Fortunately he only got knocked out for a few seconds and is okay.

Basejumping tends to make us lightheaded or anxious but something about CJ’s fetal position, barrel roll style makes the idea of plummeting off a cliff in Norway not seem so bad.

Hold on to your shorts for a beautiful, death-defying flight through the mountains of Stryn, Norway. For the first minute or so, we had no idea how or where these guys were going to land.
