Three jumpers throw themselves head down from a mountain. In order to have control of their flight the jumpers must first gain as much speed as they can. The remote Eikesdal Valley has some spectacular mountains, well suited for BASE jumping. Norwegian BASE (Bridge, Antenna, Span, Earth - ie. parachute jumping from fixed objects) jumpers using wingsuits. First they drop vertically to gain speed, then the suits allow them fly over the sloping landscape. © Fredrik Naumann
