Free Beer & Hot Wings: Wingsuit Flyer to Jump from Mount Everest Summit in May [Video]

This may not be as impressive as Felix Baumgartner’s space jump from a year and a half ago, but it’s still pretty damn impressive.

In May, wingsuit flyer Joby Ogwyn will climb to the summit of Mount Everest, slip into his wingsuit and take a leap of faith. This incredible stunt will be broadcast live on TV in May.

A team of 40 will make the trek with Ogwyn to base camp at 17,800 feet. Then, four high-altitude cameramen will join him on the three day journey to the summit at 29,035 feet.

This could either be the greatest thing in the world, or the biggest, most disastrous stunt ever televised.

We’re hoping it’s the greatest and can’t wait to watch it!
