Two firsts in one!
Austrian and Swiss base-jumpers Felix Baumgartner and Ueli Gegenshatz leap from the top of one of the 156m high pillars of the Forth Road Bridge in Scotland. The pair defied the authorities to successfully complete their FIRST EVER DUAL B.A.S.E. JUMP in the United Kingdom (UK).
Watch them register SCOTLAND'S FIRST EVER RECORDED B.A.S.E jump way back in the year 2000! This extreme feat happened off Scotland's Forth Road Bridge just outside Edinburgh (sponsored by Red Bull - just in case the parachute wasn't enough of a clue ;o)
12 Years later, on Sunday 4th of October 2012, Felix and the Red Bull Stratos Team broke multiple world records during the highest ever skydive by jumping out of a helium-filled balloon from 128,097ft (24.2 miles, 39km) above New Mexico.
CONGRATULATIONS FELIX - WHAT AN AWESOME ACHIEVEMENT!
