Men Fly Into a Plane – level 3
Two professional French wingsuit flyers, Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet, jumped from the summit of Jungfrau in Switzerland and attempted to board a plane in mid-air.
The incredible feat marked the 20th anniversary of a similar stunt by daredevil Patrick de Gayardon.
Around 100 practice flights in the Alps preceded the stunt. To everyone’s relief, the stunt, which the pair described as ‘the most intense project of their career’ was successful.
On video, it looked like a scene from a Hollywood film rather than something real.
Difficult words: attempt (try), incredible (amazing), feat (a dangerous achievement), anniversary (the date when something happened in a previous year), stunt (a dangerous achievement), daredevil (a person who likes doing dangerous things).
