Two Frenchmen recently completed a uinique stunt when they boarded a plane in mid-flight. Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet, wearing wingsuits, B.A.S.E. jumped from Mt. Jungfrau in the Bernese Alps and managed fly into a single-engine plane Pilotus "Porter", moving at 150 km /h at a height of 3900 meters.
The project, named "A Door In The Sky", was only possible whith a lot of practice. Fugen and Reffet performed more than a 100 test flights in Empuriabrava, Spain.
The door in the sky that the basejumpers managed to fly through is only 1.58 meters wide to 1.25 meters tall.
