Parachuting off Machu Picchu

 

This video shows what is reputedly the first ever speedflight off Machu Picchu, made in November 2012. áIt is said to be a áhighly technical flight due to its tricky launch, complex rotor and variable winds. áI should also mention that it is strongly NOT recommended that you attempt this yourself… unless of course you relish the prospect of a $5,000 fine, confiscation of your equipment and a night in jail. This particular daredevil managed to escape all three.
