Wingsuiting Through An Active Volcano

In this Red Bull video released today, wingsuiter Sebastian Alvarez flies through the smoking cone of Chile’s Pucon volcano.

The aesthetically shaped 2,860m volcano rises out of the landscape rises out of the landscape like a snowy Mount Fuji, as Alvarez swoops down on it in his red-and-blue wingsuit.

Alvarez either did the stunt more than once or several drones hovered about as he did his dramatic pass. What makes the less-than-two-minute film so impressive is the number of angles from which we view the feat.

In Spanish the last guy explains the Flare maneuver. Dive, gain speed and then go back up to clear the rim. It seems too dangerous for him to try more than once. Maybe they edited the other videographers out?
