Wingsuit Flying..Whoa!

Someone sent me this amazing video of wingsuit flying in France. I honestly did not know about this sport before. I looked up its definition in Wikipedia:

Wingsuit flying is the art of flying the human body through the air using a special jumpsuit, called a wingsuit, that shapes the human body into an airfoil which can create lift. The wingsuit creates the airfoil shape with fabric sewn between the legs and under the arms. It is also called a birdman suit.
