Wow! I can't believe they get that close to the walls. I would think that a slight change in the wind current would just slam them into it. Thats Bad-A** though, looks like fun!

There's been a few movies out with the wingsuits, right? I want to say I saw that in Charlie's Angles.

I wish I had the stomach for that, it looks like a lot of fun!

Here's a great shot.


This would be perfect for an old-style James Bond storm the bad guy's lair type movie.

The guy who runs www.supertopo.com is a cutting edge wingsuit flyer and spends a lot of time in Europe BASE jumping. His name is Chris McNamara. Crazy stuff. He got bored with climbing big walls around the globe and decided to try something a little more on the edge.

Very cool. Funny thing, the bit that made my guts flip was the seated guy talking to the camera. When he leans out to describe how close to the wall they get - uuggh. I see him falling.
