Mathias Wyss and Ludovic Woerth, a pair of wingsuit flyers, came dangerously close to a cameraman on a recent adventure. The two were filming for a movie called Image: Life Spent On The Edge. In this clip, taken from the Imagine footage, you can see the athletes’ close call as they soar around the mountainside:
Flying over a group of skiers, the wingsuit flyers appear to be carving the mountain themselves, as they twist and turn through trees and swoop in close to the ground while in flight.
In the photo above, you can see one of the flyers as he approaches the aforementioned cameraman, who is trying to stay clear of the passing wingsuiters, attempting to avoid the path of the approaching flyer that is racing toward him without having to put his camera down.
It’s hard to say who had the biggest adrenaline rush during the flyby–the wingsuiters or the cameraman.
