Gary Connery Wingsuit landing without a parachute

Gary Connery becomes the first person survive a 2,400ft (730 metres) jump from a helicopter without a parachute. The 42-year-old stuntman wore a specially designed wing suit, allowing him to fly at slightly slower speeds. The entire flight of nearly a mile, near Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, took less than a minute and he reached speeds of more than 80mph.

I would have been far more impressed if he had done it without the aid of 18,000 cardboard boxes, like Juliane Koepcke did. You can download Herzog’s film about her from here.

amazing story, thanks for that!
