Wingsuits Off Everest
CNN reports a guy plans to jump of the top of Mt. Everest in a wing suit. If you haven't seen those wing suits, they basically turn a person into a super fast glider. I don't see how he can make it, but I'll be watching.
We watched a show on TV a while back about wing suits. Guys would jump from high cliffs and go flying down to lower elevations really fast- about 150mph. Awesome footage from their helmet cams. I don't have the guts to do it but it must be quite a thrill for those that do.
One of the guys featured on the show ended up getting killed later on. Ran into a tree or something. They didn't show that one.
