There must be another guy in a wing suit filming him from above.

Anyone else notice that Jeb looks like Cam?

Interesting that we've never seen them together, same time, same place…hmmm :alien:

That dude is nuts. How can you calculate what your altitude will be from three miles back going several hundred miles an hour?

I didn't notice when I watched the first time but you are right Craig - the poor bastard does look like me.

That is so amazing, must just be an unreal feeling…god it looks fun. I remember seeing a clip where guys were doing barrel rolls and front flips with the wing suites on…really cool.

From what I have seen they have not been able to land w/out a chute yet safely..they are trying though….lol.

If you look through the other videos in his Vimeo account you can see where he was working towards flying through the canyon instead of just above it.

yeah, i imagine getting a low shot like that is an incremental process of many 'flights'. the judgement / balls required to get to that point just boggles though. your life expectancy can't be high when you play games like this.

for those of morbid curiosity… fatality stats for base jumping. looks like a good whack of them (27) have been in wingsuits:

Do they have any ability to pull up and therefore moderate height, or is it a constant decreasing glide angle? If the later ….. holy fuck!

Oops i see that you can, a whole two meters … that's ok then….

Please let me demonstrate the ride around; really it's no trouble.
