Sometimes I wonder if it would not be better to just use computer generated scenes rather than have stuntmen do some of the more outrageous ones.

No matter how dangerous, they will get someone to try it. In the opening credits of “Smallville” they show Clark Kent being struck by a car and knocked off a bridge. Watching some extra stuff on the CD, the producers say the stuntman really was hit in that filming. I mean it is the real thing shown.

I believe he was wingsuit jumping for his own enjoyment not doing a stunt. All the same, it looks like it would be a blast, but it does catch up with even experienced jumpers eventually.

Jeb Corliss broke his leg badly clipping an outcropping on Table Mountain a few years ago.
