Wingsuiter Crashes Through Sign In Midair At 120mph
A fearless daredevil flies through the air like a human missile and smashes through a target which is only two meters wide. Wing-suiter Sebastian Alvarez, 29, heroically jumped from a helicopter above the sprawling metropolis of his hometown, Santiago, Chile, in March this year. And despite travelling at around 124 mph, Alvarez hit the foam target - which was painted with the colors of the Chilean flag - with pinpoint accuracy.
Sebastian Alvarez is a wingsuit pilot who has captured the hearts and minds of the people in his home country of Chile and the rest of the world. A high profile jumper, Sebastian has made many BASE jumps and has competed at the Pro BASE World Cup, the Red Bull Aces and the China World Wingsuit League.
The former surf competitor traded his surfboard for an Air Force uniform and began training as a helicopter and jet pilot. But still, it wasn’t enough, so Sebastian started skydiving. After making his first jump, he immediately became fascinated by the idea of flying his body without the aid of an engine or metal wings.
Recently, Sebastian decided to take his flying to the next level, so he quit the air force and moved to California where he concentrated on skydiving, wingsuit flying and BASE jumping.
