Trond this is incredible - thrilling.  What a unique way to photograph the terrain or a Norwegian fiord.  I thoroughly enjoyed it but am not in the least tempted to try it.  Fran

Well I don't know about gardening being so sedate, even at this time of year, but that certainly perked me up!  :o :o :o Probably like nearly everyone else, I re-watched it, then looking at the native flora.  I am glad the video wasn't just the flight itself.  The "trajectory" map was especially informative.

I used to dream I could fly, not quite like Superman, and it was a little wacky (Aren't all dreams?) how I would take off, but it was a lot of cerebral fun, and I always woke up happy. ;D

Wow, what fun! but, and there's a but! I don't think I could jump off that cliff either. What am I saying, I know I wouldn't/couldn't jump off that cliff.  It's spectacular, though.

We have mechanisms to aid in the face of danger, here it so overcompensates as to provide a (?) addictive thrill -- until perhaps - - - splat!  Here the risk is great, but the potential benefit is only survival - - - and the rush.

I'll stick with gardening, too.
