Wingsuit pilot Marshall Miller teamed up with a fellow wingsuiter Scott “Plamer” Palmer and the Pilot Mike Patey in order to pull off an epic wingsuit and to perform the epic aircraft stunt across Utah with the DRACO hinterland bush plane. Bush planes are a type of small aircraft designed to land on and take off from grass airstrips or rough ground and carry passengers to remote areas. DRACO is an upgraded back country bush plane designed and built in five months by Mike Patey.
You must watch the footage, I assure you that like the spectators present, you will be amazed with the stunning images. The viewers were left open-mouthed while the adrenaline junkie effortlessly holds the wing of the plane while plummeting to the ground. In the video the two men are seen who launch themselves from the bush plane at more than 13,000 feet in the air
Bush aircraft are a type of small aircraft designed to rise and take off from grass-blasted or rough ground and take passengers to remote areas.
Pilot, Mile Patey, who spent five months designing and building the plane, is heard telling his fellow wingsuiters: ‘Alright jumpers you’re going to have to position me. You’re right in the sun so I’m half blind.’ As the bush plane slowly levels with the wingsuiters both men draw closer and are able to eventually grab hold of the wings of the plane. As Miller grabs onto the bush plane the pilot is heard saying: ‘Nice work boys! Beautiful work! ‘I am flying with superstars.’
While the shrub plane slowly comes to the same level as the waders, both men approach and can finally grab the wings of the plane. While both wing-panners jump to the ground parachuting, the pilot shares his awe at the incredible stunt and is heard saying: ‘So cool. Whatever that was it was money. Unreal boys. ‘That was beautiful. I love you guys!’
This is the heart-pounding moment one wingsuit daredevil took to the skies to perform an extraordinary jump at 13,500 feet. On Instagram Marshall Miller wrote: ‘This was actually pretty hard to do. ‘Long/short @mike_patey had to fly his badass bush plane ‘Draco’ as dirty as possible (slow and steep) while @scottpalmerair and I had to fly at max performance to match up.
‘As soon as we had proof of concept @gopro sent out a couple buds to help capture the flights and here is the edit. It took us roughly 10 attempts to line it up and make it happen.’
