Jeb Corliss, perhaps the most famous wingsuit flier in the world, successfully completed a wild stunt called "The Flying Dagger" in China.

and we’ll be expected to feel sorry for him when he goes splat someday
Darwin award winner 201?
Not much room for error in that one.
.....someday he’ll have a midair with an odd bird who happen to be nesting close by.....
Now that’s more stupid than insane...sure it depends on a great deal of skill but there is also an enormous element of luck involved with that stunt. If it was theoretically possible to do that 100 times, he would probably go splat 90 times.
Im astounded he can glide at all with those enormous brass balls hanging down...
sheesh that scared me just to watch it. I hope that guy fathers a son soon if he has not already.
I wonder what his heart rate was when he touched down?
Seeing him head toward the rock formation, I thought he would split the large gap and I thought that was dangerous with little room for error. I didn’t even see the little seam between those 2 rocks until he was almost in it.
That was heart stopping to watch.
Fantastic video but if he is gotten to the point of ever more difficult stunts, then this won’t end well. He is going to die. But we should have some fantastic viewing material in the meantime.
No way I would attempt that without wearing a diaper.
He got pretty banged up, but still jumps.
I applaud him! He represents the American courage and ingenuity we once had when embarking on the moon landing, space station, etc. Go for it, Bro!!
