This Guy Is Living My Fantasy Of Flying Like A Bird

This Guy Is Living My Fantasy Of Flying Like A Bird

Video: Even with the hours of preamble as I shuffle through the airport to my gate, flying is still an amazing experience for me. But taking off in a commercial airliner isn’t anywhere near as magical as the way Jean-Baptiste Chandelier takes flight in this stylishly-edited new video, which makes paragliding look as close to being a bird as any human can hope to be.

Dangling beneath a parachute powered by nothing but breezes and thermal currents, Chandelier can fly high in the air, but he’s also able to skim the ground at incredibly low altitudes, even momentarily touching down before taking flight once again. This is exactly how I want to fly to my next holiday, I just haven’t figured out what I’ll do with my suitcase.
