Ever been tempted to shoot your parachute with a flare gun mid-flight? Well, this is what will happen if you do.
In what police aren’t describing (but I definitely am) as a “Classic Up situation,” 26-year-old Daniel Boria tethered 110 giant balloons to his lawn chair until he flew away.
The last thing I would want to do while flying in a wingsuit (other than fly in a wingsuit) is to blast through a sign while flying. But wingsuit pilot Sebastian Alvarez is not me. He angled his flight route perfectly so that he would smash the Chilean flag sign on his way down. That is some sniper level of precision.
Wingsuits allow humans to fly like birds, at least for a finite period of time. As such, the combination of speed and using your body for control is clearly highly addictive, and as you can see in the video below, totally exhilarating. The truth is that there are also clear military applications for the technology…
A Go-Pro camera was recently found outside of Kristianstad, Sweden, after its skydiving owner lost it during a jump. Remarkably, the camera was still functional, but even more incredible is the footage it captured during nearly 10,000 feet of descent.
Watching skydivers Aleksander and Mikhael gracefully dancing as they fall over Dubai's Palm Islands gives me a weird sensation, one of awe and longing for freedom. They make it look so easy.
These two guys were enjoying their skydiving so much that they lost track on their altitude meters failing to open the parachute on time for a safe landing. Luckily they fell on what it seems to be a corn field and that softened the landing.
Because dropping the iPhone 6 on the sidewalk is not enough and because soaking it in liquid nitrogen to shatter it and shooting it with a .50 cal is a little too unfair, RatedRR decided to do the ultimate drop test for the new iPhone: dropping it while skydiving in a wingsuit thousands of feet in the air.
The sad truth is that most of us will never be astronauts who can ride spaceships back to Earth. Here's one hilarious way we can pretend though: be like this genius prankster who brought a blow up spaceship with him on a skydiving jump from a hot air balloon. Yup, he rode a spaceship back to Earth.
According to the youtube description Niklas Daniel and his fellow Brianne Thompson jumped out of a DHC-6 Twin Otter at 5,000ft. landing perfectly on their backs to slide the full length of the waterslide at around 50mph.
Skydiving is generally a heart pumping exercise that makes your pores ooze adrenaline. I mean, when you're falling to the ground tensing up is a natural reaction. But you shouldn't. You should jump and plummet to the ground with grace. Like these guys and girls who made a hot air balloon jump look as relaxing as…
Because most of us will never take the literal leap of jumping off a damn plane, here's POV footage from the Leap Frogs aka the Navy's parachute team. For the San Diego Padre's home opener, the jumpers took off in a plane and landed right smack inside Petco Park. You can hear the roar of the crowd grow louder as they…
Terrifying. Skydiving is already brown your pants scary when you're conscious. Imagine being unconscious while you're falling from 12,500 feet in the air. Think about all the horrible things that could happen. That's what happened to skydiver James Lee. Luckily, miraculously, thankfully, impossibly, he survived the…
Borderline supermen have been making crazy dives at the Earth since long before Felix Baumgarnter took a fall from space. Here are a pair of back-in-the-day badasses in a 1941 "Death Dive Race" to the ground. And looking back on it today they still seem as ballsy as ever.
The slow motion clips in this video by Simmon Hammond look like computer generated scenes from a superhero movie—the exquisite photography, the dramatic color, and the camera moves are just too perfect to be real. But it is real. And it feels magical.
Two planes carrying skydivers had a midair collision last night over northwest Wisconsin near Lake Superior. But everyone survived because they were planning to skydive out anyway. Additionally, one pilot was able to eject and the other landed his plane safely, even though it was severely damaged.
Wait for it. Wait for ittttt. Waaaitttt forrr itttt. Waai... and then boom, there it is. This poor guy accidentally deployed his parachute too early. So early that he was still on the plane. As you can imagine, he immediately got sucked out of the plane. It's like a scene from the movies, the parachute drags him out…
When you go sky-diving, there's that all-important business of making sure you don't slam into the ground, but you also have to make sure you don't slam into anything protruding out of it. This pair of urban wingsuit daredevils who dove into Rio de Janeiro came damn close to the latter when they zipped through a…
