LAKE ELSINORE, CA, 23 September, 2010 – For the first time in the history of human flight, three wingsuit skydivers flew and linked up with three parachutists for simultaneous “human surfing” in the air. One of the linked pairs became the first female team ever to ever “dock” a wingsuit and parachute in flight. More at:

Canopy Pilots: Jessica Edgeington, Ian Bobo, Jonathan Tagle
Wingsuit Pilots: Taya Weiss, Jeff Nebelkopf, Will Kitto

Taya is a good friend from college and is like a real life super hero. She also helped significantly in shooting the wingsuit segment for Popular Science's Future Of last year. Check out her organization, Raise The Sky, which organizes the use of these superhuman powers for good.
