In September of 2011, wingsuit pilot Jeb Corliss made history by flying through Heaven’s Gate on Tianmen Mountain in China. The “gate” is actually a narrow cave which he passed through at 75 mph (120 kph), something that had never been done before at that time.
The video below gives us a behind the scenes look at Jeb’s historic flight and mixes in some great footage from other wingsuiters who came along for the ride. The mountain scenes make a fantastic backdrop for these daredevils who seem to have little fear when they sail off into open space.
