This Mad Man Used an Insane Wingsuit Jumper as His Personal Flying Carpet

By Jesus Diaz on at

As if wingsuits and BASE jumping weren't dangerous enough, skydivers Espen Fadnes and Bjørn Magne Bryn decided that it would be cool to dock midair, one acting like a magic carpet and the other surfing standing on top. Well, Espen and Bjørn: You're totally right. That was cool—and fucking crazy too.

In August 2014, Team Betsafe's Espen Fadnes made history with Bjørn Magne Bryn by performing a solid connection between a wingsuit flying BASE jumper and a skydiving canopy flyer for more than 20 seconds. Project Romsdalen was made possible by two months of intense preparation, location scouting, timing calculations and numerous jumps and skydives.
