This is THE most amazing video.

Also it shows the cheapest way to go flying with perhaps the greatest buzz (apart from flying a 500 over Dartmoor Very Happy )

Do enjoy it - click on the far right of the bar to make it full screen before hitting play.

This is my 1000th post! Smile I'm only the 5th person on here to get that far, I want to see if I get my full set of heli icons now! Razz

Does the announcer on the PA (to thousands of people) actually say "Robbie Madison you are the f****ng maaan" at the end there?

I'm a jibbering wreck now after watching that - it's the dismount that's the worst...the falling feeling like when you see those 3 guys walk off that little outcrop hundreds of feet up in the air and backspin in the first video.. bleeurggghh.

Nice one WG!

Sorry Jen, cruelty is one thing but to film wanton barbarism and post on YT is just way too much. Sad

Robbie said afterwards that he had broken one of his hands and also ripped the webbing on one of his hands!! Ouch!!! That gotta hurt!

Also if you like horses then this video is one I like a lot - beautiful horses and thankfully no mindless violence to other animals going on!

Funny, I was just thinking whilst chipping skimming off the kitchen wall, a wing suit would be a lot less cumbersome than W-Girl's Immersion suit and perhaps facilitate a quicker exit, though you would have to be at some altitude to
a) enjoy the flight
b) glide to land to save having an immersion suit on as well.

One problem though (just one?) is that you also have to be wearing a parachute to slow your descent. Wonder it there's training for a run-on landing - hard point on belly? Smile

The Wingsuits was just awesome. Absolutly incredible. I wouldn't wana be as crazy as to fly that close to the face but to jump off one and glide away would be just amazing. I like the bit close to the end where the 3 are stood on that outcrop and all step off into a backflip into oblivion its ace!

That horse was super clever although i also hate the stabbing them in the back with a nice big barbed spear.
