Vladimir Spigler and his friend Joseph travel to some eastern Mediterranean country to perform some BASE jumps from a 110m bridge but here’s the catch – they will try to jump in as many different ways as they can. Before they get caught. There are lots of variations for BASE jumping, and Vladimir is going to walk (or jump) you through them – BASE jumping with the pilot chute stowed in the canopy container, with a hand held pilot chute, with pilot chute assisted from one another, by attaching the pilot chute to the bridge with a static line, with the extracted canopy hanging down and performing a rollover on top of it… Potential police encounters, wind and a traffic-filled motorway will make their day exciting, illegal, but not easy!
