Amazing Video

By David Aspinall

A daredevil climbed on to the wing of the plane he was travelling in before backflipping into the air.

Chris Nielsen was flying over Phoenix, Arizona, on July 30 when he decided to get a unique jumping spot.

Veteran of more than 4000 skydives in the last seven years, Chris can be seen crawling out to the front of the wing before steadying himself.

Getting up on to his feet, he then lets go, before flying backwards above the desert below.

Chris said: “The wing was easy to access so I thought it would be fun.

“There was a lot of co-ordination with the pilot to make it safe.

“Only the pilot and ground crew knew what I was planning so everyone else on board thought I was crazy.”
