Video: Jeb Corliss Threads The Needle On Heaven's Gate At Tianmen Mountain

In September of 2011, wingsuit pilot Jeb Corliss made history by flying through Heaven's Gate on Tianmen Mountain in China. The "gate" is actually a narrow cave which he passed through at 75 mph (120 kph), something that had never been done before at that time. The video below gives us a behind the scenes look at Jeb's historic flight and mixes in some great footage from other wingsuiters who came along for the ride. The mountain scenes make a fantastic backdrop for these daredevils who seem to have little fear when they sail off into open space.
