Wingsuit Superman Travels at πŸš€250 Kph

1 min read

He’s a Swedish superman — minus the kryptonite — who has become the youngest wingsuit pilot to fly through a solid target at 250 kph (155 mph).
“I had a dream that kept coming back time after time when I was young about running up a steep hill, and then I just take off flying,” Anton “Squeezer” Andersson tells CNN Sport over the phone from his training camp in California.
“But when I did my first jump everything became really clear for me, that it was just this that I wanted to do, a lot, and I wanted to try and do it for a living and try to do it every day because I’d never experienced anything like it.”
A form of base jumping, the pilots don aerodynamic suits that allow them to “fly” as they fall, steering with considerable accuracy before using a more conventional parachute to land safely.
A few weeks ago, Andersson — now 23 — achieved that mark of becoming the youngest pilot to fly through a solid target at 250 kph after jumping off the Hintisberg mountain in Switzerland — a peak that rises 3,000 meters above sea level.
