On a Wingsuit and a Prayer, Man Flies Down Swiss Alps

Using a wingsuit, thrill-seeker Steve Shipman jumped from the mountainside of the Walenstadt area in Switzerland.

The video, uploaded to YouTube, shows Shipman’s nylon suit catching the wind as he soars down a height of 5,400 feet to the ground below

In a Facebook post, Shipman estimated that he achieved a speed of “around 180 Kph”. Credit: Steve Shipman via Storyful
