Crazy Airplane Flies In and Out and Through a Wind Farm

Crazy Airplane Flies In and Out and Through a Wind Farm

You know those basketball or soccer dribbling drills where you snake through a line of cones, dribbling in and out one way on a cone and then slithering through the opposite side of the next cone? That’s what pilot Hannes Arch is doing in this airplane at a wind farm in Tauern Wind Park in Oberzeiring, Austria. The airplane just flies through the wind turbines over and over again like it’s a video game and not real life.

Woman in Wingsuit Flies Through a Gap Between Two Buildings

Woman in Wingsuit Flies Through a Gap Between Two Buildings

Here’s a fun video of Roberta Mancino flying in a wing suit as she splits two buildings in Panama City, Panama. It’s cool to see her quickly adjust her flight path to avoid one of the buildings and to see her reaction as she does it too.

Watch the truly extreme stunts and tricks that this helicopter does

Watch the truly extreme stunts and tricks that this helicopter does

The opening sequence of the latest James Bond movie Spectre involves explosions, a chase scene, a well tailored suit and a fight scene inside a totally insane helicopter ride. This behind the scenes footage shows how batshit some of those tricks and maneuvers were. The helicopter purposely dives itself into a group of people on the ground, almost crashes into them, and then soars up at the very last second for added dramatic effect. I would have fainted if I was there.

Watching this guy climb the Eiffel Tower made me lose feeling in my fingers

Watching this guy climb the Eiffel Tower made me lose feeling in my fingers

Ostensibly, the Eiffel Tower seems like a decent structure to climb. There are so many exposed parts that you could hold on to and so many paths to climb up that there’s no real wrong move. But then you realize, as you watch James Kingston scale the tower, that it’s actually a terrifying climb because every piece is so thin and the safe spaces are weirdly angled and that all that exposurein the tower actually makes you completely exposed. It’s frightening.

This totally crazy wingsuit video made me stop breathing

Okay, which guy is crazier. Graham Dickinson, the guy we see in the video below who’s so impossibly close the ground and the trees and the mountain face and basically inches away from crashing the entire time during this wingsuit video. Or the camera man, Dario, who is seeing all the ridiculous things Dickinson is doing and still has to keep track of him and react fast enough to capture the footage.

Must watch: Longboarder dodges oncoming traffic and races down an open highway at 70 MPH

Longboard Highway Stunt

The stunt performed in the video below is pretty crazy. Zak Maytum, a downhill longboard racer from Colorado, recently decided it'd be a cool idea to hop on his longboard and fly down a Boulder highway at about 70 miles per hour. And oh yes, did we mention that the highway has a speed limit of 30 miles per hour?

The video really does a great job of conveying how fast Maytum is going. And in case you need any proof, if you keep an eye out for when Maytum crouches down and puts his gloves to the pavement, you'll literally see sparks flying. Clearly, he's flying down the street like a speed demon.

These guys doing crazy tricks on a slackline follow different rules of gravity

I don’t know what planet these guys are from but it’s certainly not Earth because they don’t follow the very simple laws of gravity and break the concept of balance and destroy the very idea of time. They can jump on and off a slackline like it’s nothing and even do ridiculous tricks normal people couldn’t pull off if they could fly.

A helicopter closely chases a race car in this truly insane stunt

You see the word insane get thrown around on the Internet a lot. It’s a good word! But few things actually deserve the word insane. This stunt does though. Felix Baumgartner (the dude who jumped from space) pilots a Bolkov BO105 aerobatic helicopter that is basically having a movie car chase scene with a race car and forgot he was piloting a helicopter and not driving a car.

7 things you maybe didn’t know about the Mission Impossible movies

I’m not an especially big Tom Cruise fan but even I have to admit, the Mission Impossible movies are guaranteed to be a fun time. The powers behind that film franchise have pretty much mastered the art of spy action movie making and know exactly what we want: cool spy stuff, crazy stunts that put Tom Cruise in danger, exotic locales, Tom Cruise running and kick ass action sequences.
