Wingsuit flyers jump into plane mid-air

Wingsuit flyers Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet in an extraordinary stunt, literally turned around the concept of skydiving.

Jumping from the top of the Jungfrau mountain in Switzerland, the crew planned and prepared for the stunt for months.

Their first attempt had to be abandoned but eventually conditions were deemed ideal. Try to fly into the door of a plane flying thousands of feet above the ground, and live to tell the tale.

Recently French wingsuit madmen Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet made a decision to flip that equation on its head, however, leaping off the snowy peak of Switzerland's Jungfrau Mountain and IN to a moving airplane in a real-life version of a stunt you'd laugh at the ridiculousness of if you re-watched Goldeneye right now.

They had bettered the famous stunt of wingsuit pioneer Patrick de Gayardon, who once jumped from a plane before re-entering it. Gayardon was killed in a stunt in 1998 over Hawaii.

Both landed awkwardly but safely before screaming with joy and hugging each other in celebration as the plane's crew congratulated them.

The French duo are also known as the Soul Flyers.

This video may be the craziest thing you'll ever see. Their latest project is called A Door In The Sky and saw them BASE jump from one of Europe's highest peaks and into a plane while it was flying at altitude.
