Mad man uses insane wingsuit jumper as his personal flying carpet

As if wingsuits and BASE jumping weren't dangerous enough, skydivers Espen Fadnes and Bjørn Magne Bryn decided that it would be cool to dock midair, one acting like a magic carpet and the other surfing standing on top. Well, Espen and Bjørn: You're totally right. That was cool—and fucking crazy too.

In August 2014, Team Betsafe's Espen Fadnes made history with Bjørn Magne Bryn by performing a solid connection between a wingsuit flying BASE jumper and a skydiving canopy flyer for more than 20 seconds. Project Romsdalen was made possible by two months of intense preparation, location scouting, timing calculations and numerous jumps and skydives.

You are good at finding great video and thanks for that. But why do you always have to show a gif to give the story away? You lessen the experience. An orgasm is better if you send some time getting there. The final twist of a story is more satisfying if you've rad it first. Do you really suppose that your audience don't trust you to curate good work - and that we have such a tiny attention span that we need to see the money shot? PLEASE stop doing this!
