Wingsuited Daredevils Dive Into Rio, Fly Between Skyscrapers: VIDEO


Ludovic Woerth and Jokke Sommer dive from gliders into Rio de Janeiro, landing in a park behind the 38-story Ventura Corporate Towers after flying between its double skyscrapers (at the top of the image below).

Wrote Sommer: "Ludovic and I doing a wingsuit flight into Rio de Janeiro. We did not have permission to fly into the city, but to respect the commercial air traffic we did the jump 05:45 in the morning. The first flights arrive at 06:05."

Watch (full-screen and HD if possible), AFTER THE JUMP...

That's one way to arrive in Brazil.

  7. At 1:37.... can you imagine being someone on the ground or in the buildings seeing that? You'd think, "Is that a bird? Is that a plane? Is that Superman?"
