Incredible stunt sees two wingsuit fliers jump into plane mid-air

The Soul Flyers training in Spain ahead of the Swiss Alps challenge

Soul Flyers jump off mountain edgeThe French pair jump off the mountain edge. Well, Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet have a totally new adventure for you: Jump off a mountain and land inside a flying airplane.

It took more than 100 test flights and a first attempt that had to be abandoned, but the Soul Flyers finally achieved the seemingly impossible.

This is a common thing, one imagines, for wingsuiters to do.

Their first attempt had to be abandoned but eventually conditions were deemed ideal.

This week's video is high on drama and features some clever wingsuit technology used by two BASE jumpers to perform an incredible mid-air stunt.

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

James Bond in Goldeneye has just been caught spying on the Russians and needs to make his escape from a snowy, mountain-top hideout.

This was a homage to a BASE-jumper called Patrick de Gayardon, who jumped out of a plane and then flew back into it in 1997, according to CNET.

Fugena and Reffet swerve through the air before managing to catch up with a plane flying below.
