Take every discipline that makes a part of the Red Bull Air Force, throw in an Audi, a crack film crew and you get this video, which will surely induce some goosebumps while watching.
What happens when a highly-skilled, precision-flying crew of aerial athletes is tasked with creating their dream project? This incredible video.
“What we wanted to do was show every air sports discipline we do on the Red Bull Air Force team and put it into one massive sequence,” says RBAF captain Jon DeVore.
The video featured skydivers/high-speed parachute flyers Jeff Provenzano and Luke Aikins; wingsuit pilots Jon DeVore, Mike Swanson and Andy Farrington; BASE jumpers Miles Daisher and Charles Bryan; and aerobatic plane pilot Kirby Chambliss, with Sean MacCormac handling coordination from the ground thanks to some precision driving from Rhys Millen in an Audi RS 7.
The action sports community lost one of it’s favorite sons this week when Nitro Circus star, Eric Roner, died on Monday after a skydiving accident in the US. Roner was a much beloved member of the crew and was a leading ski, bike and base jumping legend.
Travis Pastrana said today, “Erik was an amazing person who made everyone and everything around him better. His smile, laughter and personality will be missed by everyone at Nitro Circus. Most importantly he has a beautiful wife and amazing kids that will miss him dearly. He is gone… But will never be forgotten.”
The tragic accident occurred at the opening ceremony of the 4th Annual Squaw Valley Institute Celebrity Golf Classic in Squaw Valley, California.
Roner was the third member of a three-man parachute team to jump and, according to witnesses, was off the drop zone target on descent and hit a large tree. He was then transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
