Incredible stunt sees skydiver swap gliders at 6,000ft

A skydiver pulled off a breathtaking stunt when he somersaulted in from the wing of one glider to another – 6,000 ft above the ground at 100 mph.

First he crawled from the cockpit of one glider above the Austrian Alps, then he flipped himself under the wing to land on the second aircraft flying below.

“It was an astonishing feat and even with a parachute it could have gone badly wrong if he’d slipped during the switch,” said one fan after viewing the footage of the stunt on YouTube.

Steiner who was one of the Austrian “Red Bull Skydive” carried out the stunt above the mountains in Styria, Austria.
