Most insane, brilliant video of flying human ever

SENSE OF FLYING from Goovinn on Vimeo.

As we ease into the weekend, anyone still stuck to choose an outdoor activity might look to the example set by Norwegian Espen Fadnes.

Watching Fadnes in his wingsuit take off on an awe-inspiring 250km/hour jaunt through the mountains, you can't help but smile - not to mention wonder how anyone can screw up the requisite courage to jump off an alpine peak in bull-goose looney pursuit of what undoubtedly is one of the greatest adrenaline thrills ever.

But this is getting to be old hat for Fadnes, who last year won an international competition for wingsuit flying, earning him the sobriquet of the world's fastest flying human.

Inspired to try? Let us know if you do.
