BASE Jumping Into an Airplane Looks as Crazy as it Sounds

After 100 test flights and an abandoned first attempt, the Soul Flyers made history when Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet leapt from the top of the 4,158 metre Jungfrau summit in the Swiss Alps into a small airplane. The Pilatus Porter light aircraft was flown by Philippe Bouvier and navigated by project coordinator, Yves “Jetman” Rossy. With 3,200 metres of vertical freefall, the team had 2 minutes and 45 seconds to attempt the stunt. In this extended cut of the daring feat completed last year, we get to see more footage of the jump and lead up to the exciting moment both BASE jumpers made it safely into the plane before jumping back out for a victory freefall. You can see more photos and videos of the feat here.  …
