The Red Bull Skydive Team recently performed one of the most daring wingsuit manoeuvres ever seen. As part of the project Akte BlaniX III, the five-man squadron set off in hot pursuit of two gliders cruising 4,000 metres above the ground. The skydivers then inched their way towards the aircraft before flying along side-by-side at speeds in excess of 180kph.

Ace paragliding pilot Gavin McClurg takes us on a recco mission to the Alaskan mountain range.

Gavin McClurg has a dream – to do a paragliding vol-bivvy trip of the Alaskan mountain range.

He’s very clear: the mere idea of doing such a thing is absolutely insane. Says Gavin: “I want to bivvy fly the full length of the Alaska Range. 350 miles. I can’t imagine a more remote, desperate or difficult flying line. Big mountains. Lots of bears. No people, no villages, no road.”
