Best Skydiving Videos Ever: Discover the top 6
“Above the clouds…” When Reinhard May tweeted these lines, freedom there may indeed have been limitless, but flying was more than just an elitist experience. If we jump from 1974 to the here and now, very few data lists can do without the entry “skydive.” Inspired by the amazing skydiving videos on the web, we muster up all our courage – for Day 10.
Our top 6 skydiving clips will blow your mind and get you ready to dive in yourself.
Step into a fairytale castle
All Autonomous: Max Manow Wingsuit premiere at Neuschwanstein Castle
With the help of a specially designed suspension system on his wingsuit, the skydiver achieved a premiere: the first fully autonomous flight in a wingsuit through the world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle!
Challenge: Combined paragliding and wingsuit flight without an existing landing zone, tandem flight or use of a helicopter. Are you ready to take off? In the clip, watch how Max Manno managed a skydiving demonstration with the first fully self-driving flight at the famous Neuschwanstein Castle.
Luke Aikins successfully achieved Plane Swap
On April 24, Luke Aikins and Andy Farrington’s attempt to conduct the first ever aircraft exchange was partially accomplished.
In addition to breaking numerous world aviation records, Felix Baumgartner’s stratospheric jump provided scientific lessons for tomorrow’s astronauts.
In a wingsuit over Streif
Red Bull Skydive course preview from the legendary ‘Streif’
As if it wasn’t amazing enough to speed up Strive on two tracks, Red Bull skydivers performed a very special track check in Kitzbühel!
From a purely technical point of view, the best downhill skiers in the Ski Circus may come close to flying when they speed down the legendary Streif. The starting house is located in Hahnenkamm at an altitude of 1665 metres. Within three seconds, skaters accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h, and later to more than 140 km/h. Without slides under their feet, but at a top speed of 250 km/h while wearing a wingsuit, the Red Bull skydiving team dared to undertake this hellish flight. The Mousetrap, the Hausbergkante or the steep slope – from these perspectives you have never seen the main passes of the Streif!
Felix Baumgartner: POV clip from the edge of the world
Red Bull Stratos
Experience the incredible fulfillment of the Red Bull Stratos mission through the eyes of Felix Baumgartner.
Another Coup by Max Manow, Marco Waltenspiel and Co. is the exciting trilogy “BlaniX File”. And if you have watched the third part, then you can safely skip the second part of “Top Gun”. At an altitude of 4,000 (!) metres, five wingsuit pilots effectively become interceptors of two gliders gliding upside down. Flying in formation, the sky acrobats from the Red Bull Skydive team came within a few centimeters of the two planes – sweet Hollywood!
Polish skydiving star Maja Kuczynska and racing pilot Lukasz Cibiela create an amazing aerial competition.
