Breathtaking High Altitude Acrobatic Skydive From 32,000 Feet

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

Skydive extraordinaires Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet achieved an incredible and unique feat for Red Bull Skycombo, combining high altitude freeflying and speedflying from 32,000 feet (10,000 meters) above Mt. Blanc, the absolute limit of possibility without wearing pressurized suits.

Though lasting just seven minutes in total, Red Bull Skycombo took more than a year and a half to prepare and brought together a whole team of specialists, including the developers of an oxygen system especially adapted for jumping less restrictive and lighter to avoid the risk of hypoxia at such a high altitude. If you are unfamiliar with the disturbing effects of hypoxia, please watch this.
