Video: Former Navy SEAL Sets Record for Longest Wingsuit Flight
Meet Andy Stumpf, a former Navy SEAL, skydiver, and wingsuit pilot. In an effort to raise funds for the Navy SEAL Foundation, Andy attempted to set a new world record for the longest wingsuit flight, eventually traveling over 18 miles (29 km) after jumping out of a plane. In this video, you'll not only see that record-breaking flight, you'll learn a lot more about what makes it possible, and the dangers involved. While he wasn't zipping just above the tree line or zooming through rocky canyons as we've seen in other wingsuit videos, Andy's flight is none the less a thrilling one. Check it out below.
