This video is relatively young, having been uploaded just last August. But it’s already a classic, racking up nearly 9 million views — and for good reason: It is arguably the most awe-inspiring extreme sports video ever recorded.
Watch as one of the world’s most daring wingsuit pilots, Jeb Corliss, rockets down the slope of The Hinterrugg in the Appenzell Alps of Switzerland and nearly takes out a camera man on the ground.
That’s precision, so precise that fans at first thought this video was a fake. It’s not.
Check out the flight path in Google Earth. Luckily, that’s about as close as you’ll get to trying a stunt like this at home.
Editor’s Note: Corliss recently crashed while filming for HBO. To see the full video, check back tomorrow.
