Jump4Heroes, The Royal British Legion Extreme Human Flight Team, fly one of their dream lines in their wingsuits along the infamous and dominating north face of the Eiger in the Swiss Alps.
Celebrating the British Armed Forces, the team bowed their heads and, stood in the vast enormity of the mountainous environment, undertook a 2 minute silence in memory of all servicemen past and present. Perched on the edge of the 'murderous wall' on the Eiger, they took their exit positions and leapt in formation.
The team, all veterans of Afghanistan, flew in an arrowhead wingman formation; Warrant Officer Spencer Hogg, with the Chemring smoke on his ankle, flying the point slot with Sergeant Deane Smith and Major Alastair Macartney swooping to their close proximity wingman positions.
Raising awareness for the Armed Forces and their families, the team's wingsuits bear the Poppy logo. At speeds of approximately 130 mph they fly in tight formation while a cineflex helicopter mounted gyro stabilised camera system tracked their progress.
