Very few can call themselves professional skydivers, but 40-year-old Jeb Corliss is certainly someone who can. With an impressive resume including jumps from the Eiffel Tower, the Space Needle, Christ the Redeemer and the Petronas Twin Towers, Jeb Corliss has recently triumphed over another world wonder: the Great Wall of China.
Corliss performed the stunt on Sunday in Tianjin. Dropping from a height of about 1.83 kilometers and travelling at around 193 km/h, he hit an apple sized target suspended over the wall. Human Arrow indeed!
Terrifying right? And yet Jeb himself said that he wants to stick to “things that are safe, repeatable, but more difficult.” How anyone would think this safe or want to repeat this again we don’t know. Apparently this stunt wasn’t as difficult as his previous stunt of flying through a 25 foot wide crevice between two cliff faces.
