​Daredevil Wingsuit Pilot Performs Ground-Skimming Flyby

This video from wingsuit-er Brian Drake attempts to answer that last question, as Drake flies down the slope of a French ski resort and gets… very, very close to the ground. YIKES.

Jeb Corliss actually hit the ground while BASE jumping. He survived but messed his legs up a bit. Even posted a video of it happening from multiple angles. Nothing graphic, but you will probably wince when you see the still-shots of prior to impact.
