Real Life Ironman – Wingsuit & Jet Thrusters

For one Dutch wingsuit flyer it has been a dream of his to take his wingsuit flying a step further, by adding jet engines to his legs while flying. Kind-of-like a real-life Ironman.

The dream became a reality when he stepped off a hot air balloon at 5000 feet with thrusters at full power and dove into the horizon. With heels whistling jet thrust, the almost super-human rode off in the distance while maintaining altitude for several miles before landing.

Excellent cinematography make this video worth watching at full screen.
