It’s a bird, it’s a plane! No, it’s actually humans flying over Manhattan in wingsuits.
Five members of the Red Bull Air Force flew over New York City, soaring at a lightning fast 120mph. While in flight, they captured breathtaking footage of landmarks, buildings and bridges, all before landing safely on a barge in the Hudson River. Red Bull informed the Huffington Post that the adventure was completely legal, unlike last year’s 1 World Trade Center BASE jump.
The human flyers took deep breaths and big leaps, flying through the city and making history. As they landed, their faces exuded exhilaration and excitement, and you just know they experienced a something sublime that most people will never get to experience.
