Wingsuit Base Jumping
WINGSUIT BASE JUMPING
Flori
Nominated by Flori

1st Place February 09

Since the beginning of time man has dreamed of human flight. Over the years little steps and innovations were made. However, base jumping with inadequate fabrics usually resulted in death. By the early 20th century some successes were being made in the field of aviation. Skydiving allowed men to explore horizontal movement. A group of pioneers known as 'The Birdmen' explored the wingsuit, but the materials available were not as advanced as their passion. 72 of the 75 original Birdmen died testing their wingsuits.  Advances in wingsuit construction allow today's adrenaline junkies to push the limit of human flight.

 This video is the OFFICIAL Matchstick Productions wingsuit flying segment from 2007's feature film "Seven Sunny Days." Starring Loic Jean-Albert, Andreas Barkhall, Espen Fadnes, Shane McConkey, JT Holmes, and others. Go to www.skimovie.com to buy the film or learn more!

There is no doubt in my mind that if we sent Little Superstar back in time 2009 years and he did this dance he would have out shined Jesus and have overtaken the title of 'son of god'. reply high five

The more I watch the video for this, the more overcome I am by it's Awesomeness. I'm a pilot, and there really is no freedom like the freedom found in flight, but this is on a whole different level. I wanna do this! Bad! reply high five

They are wearing small parachutes. A big part of the adrenalin rush is to pull the shoot later and later. There are some videos of guys pulling the chute open within 100 feet of the ground. reply high five
