Cave Wingsuit Flying

April 18th, 2013 | Space


A few weeks ago, I posted about an unbelievable urban wingsuit video from Brazil, but this new feat is even more impressive!  The Italian Norwegian Alexander Polli flies through an extremely narrow opening (maybe 10 to 15 ft wide) called “Batman Cave” at 250 km/h..!  The cave is located in the Roca Foradada Mountains in Montserrat, Spain, and it’s a breathtaking location for such an attempt.

I must say that it’s only a matter of time before someone face-plants in the rock, but I suppose we can all enjoy it until then.  What would be the next step in the evolution of this sport? Smaller openings? Doing it at night? Blindfolded?  Two people at once? A whole line of people?

Alexander was quoted on the experience saying, “I hope this inspires others not only climb over their mountains, but also to fly right through them.”
