Here is one of Jeb Corliss' great hits (or misses). It gets real interesting at about the 1:20 mark.

Don't try this at home boys and girls

Good find Phred22.

The special effects in the Fred Astaire film are pretty good, but this guy actually seems to have flown between two buildings. I restrict my thrill-seeking to walking these days, but at my craziest, I don't think you would have ever gotten me into one of those flying squirrel suits, especially to fly between towers in a big city.

You're a better man than I, Gunga Din.
