Congratulations Gary! This is simply an awesome stunt by stuntman and wingsuit pilot Gary Connery. Speak about slow flying, perfect setup and a timed stall just before impact into the humongous pile of cardboard boxes!
My friend Tigernbase.com posted this video as well on his blog which shows different angle:

Wednesday May 23rd it’s GAME ON for Gary Connery’s wingsuit landing in a pile of boxes. After a month of waiting we finally get to see his spectacular stunt. According to his Twitter stream @GaryConnery he did some solid training in Brento Italy a few weeks back, perfecting his slow flying skills.
So, after carefully nursing his 18,600 boxes, and having his hair done, he looks to be set for a full action day tomorrow.
Stay tuned to a Vimeo or Youtube channel near you! (unless you are in the UK where you can watch it live on Sky News)

Latest update is this image from Mark Sutton (source: Twitter.com). Dry boxes and blue skies! Yes!
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.
Here’s a youtube video from Gary’s training in the Swiss mountains.
