Wingsuit Racing: Not for the Faint of Heart

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads
A friend recently sent me this video of wingsuit racing, a daring, spiralling contest of human flight at 140mph. The video, by Devin Graham, features 5 athletes jumping out of a plane with wingsuits and racing to the earth, trying to be the first to cross a finish line. 

As you can see, landing wasn’t the only difficulty – after doing so, running to the line with a parachute in town is cumbersome at best!

Not to be tried without training (and courage) but well worth the armchair travel to view the video from home. 

For more, see Devin’s Facebook page where new videos are posted as they come out.

Enjoy!
