After over a month of delays, Gary Connery’s wingsuit jump finally happened Wednesday, May 23rd! Everything appears to have gone well and the first video has been posted. This makes him the first person to land a wingsuit flight without a parachute. Well at least the first to land successfully and unharmed in this often dangerous sport.

A big congratulations to Gary!

There aren’t many videos online that give me goosebumps in a good way. This is one of them. I can watch this over and over and over and still my jaw drops. The clip above is from Matchstick Production’s ski film, “Seven Sunny Days” (trailer). There are a ton of videos out there of people who are BASE jumping with wingsuits. It’s nothing new, but still awe-inspiring. They may not be as fast as a guy with a jet strapped to him, but I’m sure they’re having a ton of fun out there.
