Jeb Corliss – ‘Flying Dagger’

Jeb Corliss is a professional skydiver and BASE jumper. In the last decade however he has become synonymous with ‘wingsuit’ flying.

This video shows Jeb jumping out of a helicopter wearing the aforementioned wingsuit and then flying through a narrow “crack” (approximately 25 feet across) called Tianmen Cave, located in Tianmen Mountain National Park in Zhangjiajie, China. (see image below).

'Gateway to Heaven'

‘Gateway to Heaven’

The cave is often referred to as the ‘Gateway to Heaven’ and it’s therefore quite apt that during the video Jeb has some philosophical words on failure and life. But aside from that, the stunt itself is insane – with Jeb being quoted afterword saying that it was “…the single gnarliest thing I’ve ever done…”. Pretty big words coming from him.
