Holy gap, Batman, That Was Close: Stuntman Jeb Corliss Flies Through Narrow Mountain Slit

“The Australian” reported, that a daredevil stuntman has taken the sport of skydiving to new heights after hurtling through a narrow slit in a mountainside in rural China yesterday.

Jeb Corliss, 35, launched himself from a helicopter at 6000ft, zooming through the air at 120km/h towards the imposing Tianmen mountain in Hunan Province. The stuntman’s wingsuit, which has thin membranes between the limbs and torso, allowed the 35-year-old to glide through the air while losing altitude gradually.

He soared down and through the 1300m-high mountain’s natural archway before releasing his parachute. The 30m-wide arch left the daredevil with little margin for error.

“That was one of the greatest wingsuit flights of my entire life,” Corliss said.
