Watch a Daredevil in a Wingsuit Hit a Target at 120 MPH

Jumping out of a plane and soaring like an eagle while wearing a wingsuit isn’t for the faint of heart. But trying to hit a stationary target atop a mountain while flying at 120 miles per hour requires a whole other level of bravery, and maybe a dash of crazy?

I didn’t think I was scared of heights until I watched Clem Newell base jump off the side of this impossibly steep mountain in Switzerland and then glide miles above a small town while wearing a wingsuit.

Pulling Your Parachute While You’re Still on the Plane Is Not Fun

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.
