Red Bull Wingsuit Pilots Fly Over NYC

Posted on May 21, 2014

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, It’s the damn Red Bull team up to their usual marketing stunts!

This past Sunday, five members of the Red Bull Air Force team flew over New York City in wingsuits at speeds up to 120 mph.

The daredevils jumped out of a plane at 7,500 feet and landed on a barge on the Hudson River, according to The Telegraph.

Red Bull isn’t kidding when they say it gives you wings…

While some of us don’t have what it takes to jump out of a plane at 7,500 feet — with the probability of smashing our heads to the ground, etc — we can travel in private jets for an affordable price without having to take a leap of faith to arrive at our destination.
