‘Fastest flying human’ takes camera along for wild ride
The man who claimed the title for “Fastest flying human” in 2010 decided recently to strap on a camera and take a crew of filmmakers along for one wild ride.
Espen Fadnes, of Norway, won his title during a Norwegian competition where people don “wing suits” and hurl themselves off sheer cliffs, smoothly gliding away from the rocky face to land on the ground with the help of a parachute.
Sure, it sounds neat. You may have even seen footage of people doing this before — but you’ve never seen it quite like this.
