    Great videos. I've seen the jet guy before, but not flying in formation.

    Here's another wingsuit video...probably the best I've seen. Woo hoo!

    Jeb Corliss " Grinding The Crack" - YouTube

    Keith (I dove out of a plane once. Once.)

    That Norway vid is one of my all-time favs. I used to follow that Jeb Corliss and his antics, he's nuts! (or really living life to it's fullest, depends on your POV). He had a base-jumping buddy that misjudged a wing-suit dive over a bridge. Bad result. As far as "normal" skydiving is concerned, I would highly recommend it for anyone that thinks they are interested. Some of the best times I've ever had (with my clothes on). I would also suggest static line solo to the tandem.
