Urban Paraglider Swoops over the City
French paragliding pilot and engineer Jean Baptiste Chandelier floats off of bridges and over skylines in this stunning short video. Despite some close brushes with tall buildings, his weightless trip through the sky makes this extreme sport seem strangely graceful.
Although Chandelier makes flying look easy, paragliding pilots spend years practicing before attempting some of the more daring moves seen in this video. The turns at 5:00 are ilfe-threatening maneuvers.
