This is a pretty incredible accomplishment.  I cannot even imagine flying THROUGH a mountain!  “Bird Man” Jeb Corliss, does it again as he flies THROUGH Tianmen Mountain in his wingsuit!

CCTV.com gives the official recap:
“Tianmen Hole is a 360-foot-tall, 96-foot-wide, and 260-foot-long formation located near the city of Zhangjiajie in central China’s Hunan Province. Corliss will jump from a helicopter hovering at 6,000 feet and attempt to glide through the hole.”

To bring his story a little closer to home (since I’ve never been to China), here is another video of Jeb Proxy Flying at the Matternhorn in Switzerland!

I was lucky enough to get to snowboard there with some of my buddies a few years ago, so seeing this video brought back some memories!

Here’s the video

And to remind my buddies of that incredible trip, here are some pictures from us at Zermatt!
