They stated it has been done with the wing suit. This is the first guy to jump without using a parachute or wings suit.

And the 25 THOUSAND feet thing too. I think that's probably an important distinction mostly because he has to hit is target. Kinda like making a 1 mile long sniper shot as compared to a gut shot.

But I don't have knowledge of the difficulty. Just seems like there's alot that can go wrong at that height. I bet his next record will be same stunt, but from higher up with a balloon. I think he trained that guy that set that record not long ago.

Either way, giant balls! lol

Democrats: abolish ICE... free health care for illegals... make it easy for illegals who cross to stay... give illegals the right to vote... adamantly oppose building a secure border... create "sanctuary cities"... grant illegals in the country amnesty... create welfare laws to service illegals in the Home Depot parking lot... tip off illegals about ICE raids.
And we're supposed to believe that Democrats aren't for open borders simply because they say so?
