Friday Freakout: Parachute Opens, Catches On Plane Tail

Friday Freakout: Parachute Opens, Catches On Plane...

As the saying goes, “Plan the jump and jump the plan.” But sometimes a jump just doesn’t go according to plan. Like when your parachute deploys in the door and wraps around the tail of the plane, tossing you around like a puppet on strings. This video, as well as the premature parachute opening on...

Veterans Day: Poppy Proximity Flying

Veterans Day: Poppy Proximity Flying

In commemoration of Veterans Day/Remembrance Day, Major Alastair Macartney and Sergeant Deane ‘Smudge’ Smith of Jump4Heroes went wingsuit proximity flying off Mount Brento in Italy to raise awareness for The Royal British Legion. They’re wearing permanent poppies on their expensive wingsuits; the least we can all do is wear a temporary poppy for Veterans Day/Remembrance... Watch Video »
The Nordic Meet 2011

The Nordic Meet 2011

17 friends. 4 hours in the tunnel. 3 days of skydiving. The result: a group of friends pushing the limits and some sick flying at The Nordic Meet 2011! TNM is an annual invitational skydiving event organized by Martin Kristensen and hosted at Skydive Voss in Norway. Watch Video »

She Can Fly: Hot Air Ballon Fly-By

She Can Fly: Hot Air Ballon Fly-By

There’s nothing hotter than a hot French woman flying by a hot air balloon in a wingsuit. Except maybe wearing a wingsuit on a hot day. Following the “I Believe I Can Fly” documentary about highlining and BASE jumping, director Sebastien Montaz-Rosset just finished shooting this documentary about professional female BASE jumper Géraldine Fasnacht.

Friday Freakout: Angry Birds vs. Paraglider

Friday Freakout: Angry Birds vs. Paraglider

Don’t you hate it when you’re paragliding through the Indian Himalayas and a couple of real-life angry birds come along and mess your shit up? I sure do. But this Ruskie handles it like a champ. After a reserve ride and hard landing, all is well. Even the “angry bird” survives. Watch Video »
Fly Like Brick: Aerobatic Wingsuit Flying

Fly Like Brick: Aerobatic Wingsuit Flying

Aerobatic wingsuit flying is kinda like figure skating. Except it’s way more badass with a wingsuit in the sky instead of skates and glitter. Never mind. It’s nothing like figure skating. Congrats to Jarno Cordia and Alejandro Lopez Arce of team Fly Like Brick — a wingsuit skydiving team — for taking 1st place at... Watch Video »
Skydiving Car: First Test Drive In Freefall

Skydiving Car: First Test Drive In Freefall

The über talented Steve and Sara Curtis, Greg Gasson and Joe Jennings took the Chevy Sonic on its first skydiving adventure in the Arizona desert. And apparently Chevy’s new Wile E. Coyote option — a massive parachute — works as advertised. I call “shotgun” on the next jump! Watch Video »
I Believe I Can Fly

I Believe I Can Fly

The Skyliners are a group of friends pushing their limits by combining BASE jumping with highlining — a vertiginous mix of climbing, slacklining and tightrope walking. This is the trailer for the feature documentary “I Believe I Can Fly (Flight of the Frenchies)” by Sebastien Montaz-Rosset. I can’t wait to see the full documentary. Stunning... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Surprise!... Canopy Collision

Friday Freakout: Surprise!... Canopy Collision

Losing your helmet in freefall is never fun (watch closely at the 0:03 mark). Neither is a canopy collision/wrap immediately after dumping your main. This video is from the good ‘ol days — 1989 — back when, apparently, tracking away at break-off was only a suggestion. Oh well, nice video. Watch Video »
200-Way Record Attempt Over California

200-Way Record Attempt Over California

Following yesterday’s photo of the 200-way exit, this is Craig O’Brien’s video of 200 of the world’s most talented skydivers attempting to break the California state record at Skydive Perris in October 2011 (submission as an official record is still pending). Congrats to everyone on the jump! Craig, that’s some badass backslididing at break-off. Watch Video »
Flying First Class

Flying First Class

Why fly economy when you can fly first class with Babylon Freefly — the real rock ‘n rollas — at Skydive Empuriabrava in Spain. You’d almost think these guys are experienced skydivers or something. Watch Video »
More Than A Feeling

More Than A Feeling

A juicy edit by Paul Doppler of Team Freestyle from their paragliding adventures in Switzerland, Austria and Italy. Congrats on this stunning piece of cinematography, Paul, and great track choice too! Watch Video »
Wheelchair BASE Jump at Bridge Day

Wheelchair BASE Jump at Bridge Day

After getting a taste of his first wheelchair BASE jump at Bride Day last year, Lonnie Bissonnette of Team FX was psyched to try again at Bridge Day 2011. Unfortunately, due to public safety concerns from the local authorities, he wasn’t allowed to jump with his wheelchair (what changed since last year, Sheriff??). Oh well.... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Synchronized Swooping Fail

A brilliant display of synchronized swooping. “Just flare when I flare… biff when I biff.” Great team work guys; real friends stick together to the very end. Watch Video »
Red Bull Air Force at Bridge Day 2011

Red Bull Air Force at Bridge Day 2011

What do you get when you put 180,000 spectators and 400 BASE jumpers on a massive bridge? Bridge Day 2011, and what would Bridge Day be without Othar, Charles, JT and Santa of the Red Bull Air Force entertaining the masses. Also, TandemBASE was available for the first time at Bridge Day 2011 in its... Watch Video »
Best Idea Ever… Swoop 'n Slide

Best Idea Ever… Swoop 'n Slide

No, really! Best. Idea. Ever. What better way to cool off on a hot summer’s day at Skydive Arizona than to swoop a 200-foot slip and slide. Just another day at the office for Niklas Daniel of AXIS Flight School — the same guy responsible for setting his parachute on fire and skydiving with a... Watch Video »

Bodyflight: The Best 3 Minutes So Far!

The Skywalkers spent 3 days in the Bodyflight tunnel to create a new 3 minute 6-way routine. They worked on some new moves and this was the result… their best 3 minutes yet. Not too shabby, huh? If you’re looking for more tunnel action, check out this amazing wind tunnel instructor at Airkix and the... Watch Video »
Epic Hotel Elevator BASE Jump

Epic Hotel Elevator BASE Jump

Aside from not having to take the stairs, I can’t think of a better reason to use an elevator than to BASE jump off of it, and that’s exactly what Chris “Douggs” Mcdougall, Carlos and Dario do at the Hotel Bali in Benidorm, Spain. Next time you’re visiting the Hotel Bali in Spain, don’t use... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Hits Plane

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Hits Plane

Skydivers and planes go together like parachutes and gravity… except when planes fly along jump run when it’s time to pull. It’s a good thing parachutes and gravity still work well together, because that’s the only thing stopping this guy from hitting the plane in freefall. Have you ever had a close call like this...
