While visiting one of my other forums I came across this panorama video taken in Norway.

The fellow has a FISHEYE lens video camera attached. He JUMPS OFF a high mountain ridge and soars to the highway far far below. He is using a WINGed SUIT.

During his descent.. use your mouse to scroll around / up and down to see the terrain. There two Suit flyers... you can see the other flyer back up up on his right... the later on his left back angle.

It autoreplays .. so you will get to see the flight a couple of times !

Thanks for that movie.. yes... I kept tilting my head back saying to myself UP UP UP GO UP..... fly higher.

Only difference between these two flight movies ours you could mouse click the movie and rotate around / tilt up/ down to see what else is going on during the flight.. like a 360 panoramaic view of the decent.


We also take 360 panorama images... but from a stable, firm ground based tripod or from a 25 foot high pole also planted firmly on the ground.

LOLLL you WILL NEVER get me to jump off a mountain like that.

The first wing suit movie I saw was about 3 or 4 years ago..Switzerland online newspaper article with an embedded movie of the flight.
