Red Bull Wingsuit Pilots Fly Between the Tallest Towers in Malaysia

by Shane McGlaun

I’m sure everyone is familiar with skydiving, but I’m not sure everyone is familiar with a wingsuit. If you have seen the movie Transformers 3, you might remember the soldiers in the flick jumping out of an airplane wearing black suits that allow them to glide rather than simply float to the ground. The atuntmen performing that stunt in the movie were actually from the Red Bull Air Force.

Some of those same daredevils recently took a trip to Malaysia where they jumped out of an airplane and used their wingsuits to fly around some of the most iconic landmarks in the country. The stuntmen flew their wingsuits so close to the KL Tower in Kuala Lumpur that look like they were going to hit it in the video. They also flew by the iconic Petronas Twin Towers.

That particular building has two identical towers standing side-by-side with a sky bridge connecting them. The building has been in several movies so you have likely seen it before. The two men who flew between the towers were traveling at about 120 mph. Check out the video to see the daredevils in action. This isn’t quite as cool as the Red Bull sponsored Felix Baumgartner 120,000+ foot skydive, but the wingsuits are pretty amazing nonetheless.
