This made me laugh. The Brits have always loved the spirit of adventure and for many years swimming across the English channel was the same sort of challenge as climbing Mount Everest. So along comes the extreme sports loving, BASE jumping Austrian who jumps out of a plane at 30,000 feet with a pair of wings strapped to his back and flies across the channel. Total nutter.
If that wasn’t crazy enough part of his training program involved being strapped on the top of a Porsche driven at speed so he could get used to going at over 120mph! Now that’s the kind of job I’d never get bored of!
