Yesterday we got the word that Felix Baumgartner would be denied his attempt at setting a new world record for skydiving, at least for now. Today we have a great video of Jeb Corliss demonstrating what all the fuss is about in this video that shows off the use of a wingsuit. We’ve seen these videos before of course, but this one is pretty amazing for the scenery that Corliss is flying through. The video really does give you a sense of the speed and freedom these suits give to skydivers, and this looks like an absolute blast. (Warning: The music included in the video might make your ears bleed)
Thanks to Rocky over at The Goat Blog for the heads up on this one. Very cool video.
