Wingman Takes Flight Outside Dubai
Don't try this at home
Recently one of the world's best-known base jumpers, Graham Dickinson, visited Dubai and went looking for a cliff to jump from.
BASE jumping has grown in popularity in recent years. It's parachuting or wingsuit flying from a structure or cliff.
Dickinson drove for two hours and found some arid looking cliffs to jump from in the desert. Here's what happened next:
If you are able for something a bit more gut-wrenching, Graham and his jump partner (Dario) found a jump spot they christened "water" because Graham forgot to bring enough water for the hike. Here's what he had to say:
"Even though it is the cold season in the U.A.E. The temperature here still gets as high as 33°C during the day. I underestimated how long we would be hiking and thought three liters of water would suffice but between my low carb intake and dehydration I was starting to feel a little light headed and fatigued. Dario led the way and was first to jump; he took a massive leap and cleared the rock shelf ledges below by miles and miles. I laughed and thought to myself how I am going to top that?"
