In Case You Missed It: How low can you go?

“Is this the closest a wingsuit pilot has ever flown to the ground?”

That’s the question from Epic TV. I’ll leave answering that question to the experts. I’m too busy picking my jaw up off the floor.

Wingsuit pilot Brian Drake and two others were flying down France’s Ensa Couloir last week. At the bottom you exit out a tight gully and Drake was so low to the ground the cameraman could have given him a high five. If not for the fact Drake was going 160 mph.

I’m not sure if he was freaking out or in total control, but either way “ridiculously insane” would be an accurate description.
