GoPro shared this video of pilot Hannes Arch, the 2008 Red Bull champ and leader in the 2014 circuit. He takes off from a mountain road in the Alps, which is bloody terrifying, and then performs a few crazy manoeuvres in the air, causing hyperventilation on our side…

He does everything but fly straight, it’s freaking amazing and a joy to watch. I can fly a little bit, with a PPL in my back pocket, but this is crazy. Do you know how hard it is to keep an aeroplane straight when taking off? Hannes does it on a highway, ALA James Bond style!
