Red Bull seems to have cornered the market on insane stunts. They are major sponsors of all things "extreme".
This video hit the 'net in April 2010. The stunt is pretty amazing, as a skydiver climbs out of a glider, transfers to another glider, and then grabs the first gliders' tail as he flies inverted overhead. Sweet.
To learn more about the stunt, or team Blanix, get the skinny from the Red Bull website.
Now I wanna go fly a sailplane... Great...

Well, the embed didn't work. You can see the video by going to the URL above (Video Link), or you can watch in on my website, www.taildraggersinc.com

Great clip making the rounds!
I fixed the embed, Wayne - just FYI, to embed a video or other media, paste it in using the "embed media" button (looks like a TV set) on the editor toolbar, rather than just pasting the raw code into the message itself.
Thanks for sharing that here!

Thanks for fixing my embed! I'll remember the TV tip from nowon. I think this one needs to be posted over in "Hangar Talk" as well,so everyone can see it. It's a good one.
Nevermind... It's already there...

I flew a few fine Blanik products-----great airplanes-----they handle like a dream and are very fun to fly aerobatics with. I'll volunteer to fly a reprise of this at Oshkosh sometime...
