Red Bull’s Mega Swing Sits 6,000 Feet In The Sky


Red Bull has turned a childhood dream into reality by taking two hot air balloons, attaching a 125m rope to it, and having four daring skydivers ride the “Mega Swing.” Skydiver George Lettner says the goal behind the contraption was to swing “higher and higher, and finally jump off and fly.” The team had to plan out the stunt carefully, making sure to calculate for weather and swing tension consistencies. Check out the anxiety-inducing video above and try to imagine yourself getting on the Mega Swing.
