Wingsuit team BASE jump the Eiger

Unable to see video? CLICK HERE

Members of the Royal British Legion Extreme Human Flight Team use wingsuits to fly along the north ridge of the Eiger in the Swiss Alps.

The team, known as Jump4Heroes, observed a two minute silence in honour of the British Armed Forces before leaping from the edge of the mountain.

Former Warrant Officer Spencer Hogg flew out in front, with Sergeant Deane Smith and Major Alastair Macartney on either side of him in an arrowhead formation.

After free-falling in their wingsuits, they opened parachutes decorated with poppies.

The team undertook the jump to raise money for the Royal British Legion which offers support to members of the Armed Forces and their families.
