High-Altitude Skydivers Perform Acrobatics at 33K Feet
It’s one thing to compete in an indoor skydiving league—because, well, you never really have to jump out of a plane to make it happen. You could also venture to the nexus of extreme sports and try your hand at the real deal. Or, like everything the Red Bull team does, you could just take it a step further.
In this video, professional skydivers Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet are shuttled to the edge of existence—33,000 feet above France’s Mount Blanc, to be exact—to take the ultimate leap of faith. Sans pressurized suits but huffing oxygen, the two perform ballet-like feats as if it were just another day at the office. Watch the results below.
