Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Flat Spin + Zipper Malfunction

Posted by Andrew R.

This is an incident you don’t see too often: a wingsuit flat spin and a “zipper malfunction” — although I think it was the result of human error and not a defect with the zipper (and not to be confused with a “choo lace malfunction”).

It starts off with a wingsuiter transitioning to his back, which turns into a flat spin at 10,000 feet. He collapses his wings to stop the spin, but his left booty comes off his foot and the leg zippers begin to open as the tail flaps in the wind.

He rolls onto his belly and pulls by 6,500 feet, and lands his main canopy safely on the beach.
