Watch Crazy People Wingsuit Jump Into Sydney Harbour

While most normal people spent their Thursday morning eating breakfast and heading to work, Glenn Singleman and Heather Swan jumped out of a plane over Sydney Harbour wearing wingsuits and a couple of Contour action cameras.

The pair jumped from the plane at 14,000 feet with both a Contour helmet cam, as well as one attached to Singleman’s foot. While the footage could use some editing, you have to admit that it’s a fine way to view the Harbour city… Overall it took them more than two years to get approval for the jump from nine different government agencies, so if you want to give it a go yourself, be prepared to wait.

Obviously the jump was done to illustrate the extreme conditions Contour cameras can withstand. And the footage is testament to the cameras – at the very least, it makes me consider the idea of jumping out of an aeroplane…

Considering the jumpers travelled over 3.5 nautical miles during their descent, gliding forward at three times the speed of which they are falling before pulling the chutes at 3,000 feet, it’s amazing just how well the footage holds up. Now all it needs is an edit and some Kenny Loggins Danger Zone playing in the background…
