Is this a look at the future of war, or an attempt to set a new world record?
Awesome. Just awesome. The craziest human, Jetman Yves Rossy, and his protege, Jetman Vince Reffet, did one of the coolest stunts imaginable: they flew in jet packs right next to an Airbus A380 on top of the Dubai skyline. Imagine looking out the airplane window and seeing a guy flying by.
Okay, which guy is crazier. Graham Dickinson, the guy we see in the video below who’s so impossibly close the ground and the trees and the mountain face and basically inches away from crashing the entire time during this wingsuit video. Or the camera man, Dario, who is seeing all the ridiculous things Dickinson is…
Wingsuits let humans glide through the air on Earth, but could they let us fly like birds on another world? A paper suggests that humans could achieve takeoff and flight on Saturn's moon Titan, but only if they get a good running start first and strap on some large wings.
Jeb Corliss has created a highlight reel of his greatest wingsuit stunts, and the results are electrifying. Watch him fly through the air like some literal batman, narrowly avoiding cliffs, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio, and certain demise.
