Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper's Nightmare Wingsuit Malfunction

Andrew Revesz

This is the unofficial how-to video for "canopy proximity flying." I'm not entirely sure if this was a wingsuit malfunction or a pilot error, but it turns into a shit show real quick. An unstable deployment. Nasty line twists. Avoiding a cliff strike by inches. Oh, and a vuvuzela horn blowing at 0:53. This guy's lucky to be alive. Next time, he might want to wait until he lands before busting out the vuvuzela.
