Wingsuit flyer Jeb Corliss has flown into some very tight places. He recently dropped into the Italian Dolomites, where he zoomed into an area known as the Death Star Run. Though Jeb didn’t use The Force, and there wasn’t a vulnerability in the mountain’s thermal exhaust port. Here’s a 360º view of the same location.
We’ve seen an eye-popping top-down perspective of the Pyramids of Giza before. Now witness this world wonder from a different angle, as Red Bull athletes Fred Fugen, Vincent Cotte, and Mike Swanson fly incredibly close to the Pyramid of Khafre thanks to their streamlined new wingsuits.
Most wingsuit jumps we’ve seen started from an airplane or helicopter. Wingsuit pro Luigi Cani shows off with an unconventional launch, flying off the top of the tallest skyscraper in Brazil using the stored energy of a slingshot, flinging him from 0-to-34 mph in one second.
While BMW is best known for its cars, SUVs, and motorcycles, they can now add “electric wingsuit” to their list of accomplishments. Working with pilot Peter Salzmann, they created a solo flying machine that gives a flyer a boost of power, the ability to stay airborne longer, and to also increase altitude.
Daredevil flyer Jeb Corliss pays tribute to base jumper Uli Emanuele by attempting to fly some of the incredibly magnificent and dangerous flight paths his late friend was famous for. A truly immersive 360º experience you’ll want to watch in fullscreen or on a VR headset.
Wingsuit flyers Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet aka “The Soul Flyers” pulled of an insane stunt in the mountains of Switzerland. They B.A.S.E. jumped from a 13,000 ft peak, took aim at an airplane cruising at a lower altitude, then landed inside while it was in mid-air.
The world’s hottest daredevil, Roberta Mancino, recently took a helicopter ride over Chile’s active Villarrica volcano, and proceeded to jump out wearing her wingsuit. Props to Sebastian Alvarez, who went along for the ride, along with photographer Carlos Pedro Briceño.
