This shooting star in the dim light is none other than the Swiss wingsuiter Geraldine Fasnacht in full flight in the Alps.
A night flight that took place in Valais, at more than 5500 meters altitude, with a combination of wingsuit fully illuminated with LED. The “bird-woman” made this jump to Grand Combin, which rises to 4314 meters in the Swiss Alps.
With her wingsled and connected wingsuit, Geraldine flew over these beautiful glaciers in the darkness before sunrise. A world first but especially a unique project in the world, which was very complicated to put in place as explained by the director David Carlier. Because of the lack of natural light on the one hand (necessarily because it was dark) but also the cold and lack of oxygen at this altitude. Because the Swiss athlete was flying at over 180 km/h with a temperature around -20 ° C, so not easy to breathe and stay focused!
Another great performance for Geraldine Fasnacht, the great specialist of the genre, who is doing very well with this new historic jump.
