Pyramids: Leap of Wonder
Cédric Dumont makes the first ever wing-suit flight witnessed by the Great Pyramids of Giza
An identified flying object has been spotted in the sky of Giza on Thursday January 29. Starting as a freefall, it then developed into a wing-suit flight, ending up with an open parachute hovering in the most extraordinary airspace in the world.
Red Bull athlete, Cédric Dumont, performed the first ever wing-suit jump that landed right at the steps of the Great Pyramids of Giza. What made this jump even more impressive is that Dumont opened his helmet’s visor once he released his parachute, to enjoy the most spectacular view and unique sight, from above. It seemed to be the best “seat” in the house. As soon as his feet touched the grounds of Khafre, located between Khufu and Menkaure pyramids, the 43 years old Belgian athlete could not hide his emotions and genuine excitement.
However, this is not the first visit to Cairo as Dumont had previously attempted a BASE jump from the Cairo Tower in 2012, which was canceled due to risky wind conditions, but in a show of confidence in Egypt’s stability and unmatched tourism attractions, he returns to the last of the original seven wonders of the world, thanks to the cooperation from Egypt’s Ministries of Defense, Youth & Sports as well as Antiquities and the General Secretariat.
