Occurred: July 26, 2016 / Da Shan Bao, Yanjin, Zhaotong, Yunnan, China Info from Licensor: "World-famous BASE jumper and daredevil, Miles Daisher attempts the stunt he has always dreamed of: hitting a target while flying in his wingsuit at 120mph. For Miles, this dream came true when he competed at Wings for Love, a BASE jump fundraiser event in China. Wings for Life helps raise money for social causes in China. It was here in China, Dashanbao, Yunnan Province, where Miles made his dream come true. Accompanied by fellow pro wingsuit pilot, Chris 'Douggs' McDougall as his cameraman, Miles exits the helicopter and starts making a b-line for his target (a set of styrofoam wings, only a couple of feet in diameter.) Miles' target extends several feet out from a small spectator building, leaving him little room for error or miscalculation. It is also here at this platform where spectators are watching and anxiously awaiting to see Miles make history. With incredible precision and fluid grace, Miles hits his target head on, making his "BASE Dream" come true!"
