It is hard to imagine ways to make wingsuit flying seem more awesome and dangerous than it already is. Whenever they jump out of an airplane, wingsuit flyers are putting faith in what is essentially a full body version of drop-crotch pants to “safely” glide to the earth at 62 MPH. Yet, wingsuit flyers can’t seem to help themselves from making this even more hair-raising. For this video, wingsuit stuntmen Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet decided to add two more death-defying elements to their flight: BASE jumping (or jumping off a cliff rather than a plane), and landing not on the ground via parachute, but sailing inside of an open plane door in mid-flight. This is bonkers, especially when you consider that their tiny landing zone is only a few feet behind an operating propeller.
