The Electrified Wingsuit: the men behind the stunt - Changing Lanes #036. The BMW Podcast.

BMW Ahmed Mazen 9 April 2021

He stands high up on a peak, spreads his arms, and jumps. This sounds life-threatening at first, but actually it’s a popular sport for adrenaline junkies: flying through the air in a wingsuit.

Together, they turned a risky idea into a stunt which had never been attempted before.
