Offbeat Video

A daredevil performed a dizzying stunt as he completed seven barrel rolls through the sky.

Taking to the blue skies above Sopot, Bulgaria, aerial acrobat Veso Ovcharov decided to step up his flight.

The veteran paraglider of 19 years used his momentum to throw the parachute forward and complete seven full barrel rolls.

After looking like a slinky rolling down some stairs, Veso then comes out of the manoeuvre and smoothly flies away.

Veso said: “After doing those flips you just feel alive full of joy and excitement.

“When you’re over the wing, you feel 6.5G gravity and all your muscles and mind work hard to keep the picture sharp.

“It’s really exhilarating.”
