Skydivers fly like superheroes as they perform loop-de-loop stunt in mid-air
This breath-taking footage shows the moment a group of skydivers were seen practising their best superhero impressions.
Captured on camera, the four wingsuit riders appear to defy gravity as they soar through the air in formation over Teuge, Netherlands.
But in a scene that would put Superman to shame, Dutch skydiving expert, Jarno Cordia, 36, is seen performing a series of incredible loop-de-loops whilst in mid-air.
Known as carving, Jarno circles around fellow skydivers, James McDonald, 33, from the UK, Mohammad Al-Refaei, 30, from Kuwait and Dutch Yorick Bleijenberg, 29.
Jarno is able to make subtle adjustments to his body position to perform huge circular motions around the outside of his team’s flightpath.
By combining streams of smoke from devices attached to their ankles, the group were able to create a stunning vortex of colour whilst travelling at speeds of around 120mph.
However, learning to perform such a dangerous stunt is no easy task, as the group have logged over 8,000 jumps between them.
Jarno said: “We don’t just look like superheroes, that’s also how it feels.
“We have the ability to fly through the sky, speed up to over 180 mph, swoop dive and turn faster than a race car.
“These wingsuits are like flying your own personal Iron Man suit.
“It’s highly addictive, in a way, you could say gravity is our drug.
“To creative visually exciting shots, I circled the formation several times during freefall.
“Realising this would create even more interesting smoke patterns, we also equipped my wingsuit with a signal-smoke.
“We managed to capture the curling smoke pattern, carving around the other from one of my team mate’s helmet camera.
“Doing 60 mph laps around a formation moving at 120 mph forward, we generate a lot of speed, that’s why experience and training is very important.”
