2013: Phenomenally Long Proximity Wingsuit Flights in the Swiss Alps | HeliBASE 74, Ep. 3
After the tragic first day fatality, the world’s best wingsuit pilots decide to fly on in the memory of Mark Sutton.
Following Mark’s death, close friend Tony Uragallo retires from the sport of wingsuiting and Carlos Briceno bows out with a hand injury but the other wingsuit pilots continue to fly in Mark’s honor.
The group head into Switzerland to fly Dent de Morcles, a mountain that has never been flown before. But with a tight landing area, power cables and a valley prone to wind this will not be an easy ride.
What happened next, shown in this video, was what many of the wingsuit professionals described as “the flight of their lives”.
