This amazing footage was taken as three daredevil friends flew together in perfect formation over iconic Venice.

Pilot Marco Frontera flew the plane while his two friends, Niccolo Porcera and Massimiliano Haim faced the skies in wingsuits. It was Massimiliano who shot the footage.

The two men leap form the plane before gliding into position only feet away from one of the plane’s wings.

We see the the shadow of one of the wingsuiters on the plane and the iconic Venice Lido stretched out below.

In the final scene the men activate their parachutes and are whipped away from the plane.

The group had a brief beforehand where they planned their stunningly precise formation.

Dubai based Massimiliano Haim, said: “It is the first time ever a wingsuit and a plane have flown together in such a precise manner.

“The pilot is a former jet fighter and the wingsuiter is a proximity pilot, so both of them are expertly skilled.

“I studied the direction of the flight to have a good illumination and to cast the shadow clearly on the wing – that’s was the briefing about.

“I said Imagine if we can really get you flying in close proximity to the plane and getting your shadow on the plane, with Venezia in the background.”
