Four men in the air - level 3
Is it a bird? is it a plane? No, these are actual people flying through the skies of New York City!
On Sunday morning, four members of an aerial sports team used wingsuits to fly over the Manhattan skyline.
Looking a little more like flying squirrels than flying humans in their special jumpsuits that combine skydiving and hang-gliding, the flyers were able to travel two miles in two minutes, getting this amazing view of New York City.
Aided by their wingsuits, the daredevils travelled at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour (75 kph).
Passing the iconic buildings of the financial district, they headed uptown where they deployed their parachutes, landing safely on a barge on the Hudson River.
Difficult words: skyline (outline of land and buildings), hang-gliding (flying a big wing), aid (help), daredevil (somebody who likes to do dangerous things), uptown (outside of the city towards the top of the city), deploy (open), barge (type of a boat).
