Phoenix Fly Tracking Suit and Phantom 2 Wingsuit over Denmark

I am flying – Just cruising on a Sunday afternoon

I was out cruising with my girlfriend this weekend. She was in her tracking suit and I was flying my wingsuit. What an absolutely perfect weekend in the skies above Denmark.

Cardboard boxes are officially THE NEW BLACK in wingsuit flying

What fascinates me most about the world we live in, is that nothing is ever status quo. Every single day people come up with new ways to progress. Sometimes the most simple approach to a challenge is the way to go. Gary Connery sure executed his plan to perfection when he landed his modified Tony Wingsuit dead center into a humongous pile of cardboard boxes.

Got a wingsuit flyver team? Need a sponsor? Here's and idea!

My fellow base jumper and skydiver deluxe Joel Strickland from Varial Freefly team was there, and was kind enough to share his fantastic photo of the pile of boxes. The very pile of boxes that cushioned Gary’s perfectly aimed wingsuit landing.


WARNING: If, however, you choose to play with these great inventions (be a wingsuit OR a cardboard box) – here’s what CAN happen to you:

Bremont Wingman postpones landing

Looking forward to May

Looks like Bremont supported Wing-stuntman Gary Connery’s wingsuit landing has been postponed. It was supposed to happen last week, but the pour british weather situation ruined the chances of a successful event.

I am hoping it will happen in May!

Not really sure what to think about it. Bremont is promoting it as a ‘wingsuit landing without a parachute’. But is a precision crash into a huge pile of ‘stuntman boxes’ at full flight really a landing?

Anyway, it sure is cool though! And for Gary this sure must give his stuntman career a nice push forward. Looking forward to seeing some spectacular video footage from multiple angles when he succeeds.
