The tower stands 828 metres high.

Basejumpers use wingsuits to fly – just amazing

These basejumpers grew board of just jumping off cliffs, falling for a bit then popping a shoot. So they built sugar-glider wing suits and began to fly. That wasn't quite doing it for them, so they went to Norway and began flying close - really close - to cliffs and rocks... even roads.
