Wingsuit flying in Dubai shown on 360 video

Time Out Dubai has the footage and story of extreme wingsuit flying in Dubai - 360 video, released by Graham Dickinson on YouTube. Watch it here

Adrenaline junkies have long made Dubai a must-visit place as they bid to push the boundaries of human capabilities.

But for the most part they seek thrills from man-made structures and machines rather than the mountain ranges that form the spine of the Arabian Peninsula. And why wouldn't they; after all, how many cities in the world allow you to jump of 828m high buildings, or zipline from the tallest residential tower in the world?

But a new video released on YouTube has showcased the sort of extreme fun possible if you venture out into nature.

Shot from the head of Wing Suit enthusiast Graham Dickinson on one of his 100+ jumps in the region, it uses the latest 360 technology to give you control of the view as the daredevil hurtles above rocky crags and through dangerous crevices.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN CONTROL THE ANGLE OF THE VIDEO, SIMPLY BY DRAGGING THE CURSOR (DESKTOP) OR MOVING THE SCREEN (MOBILE)

Quite where the video is exactly shot isn't made clear in the post across Graham's social media, but we do know the route he takes is the first time anyone has ever flown through it, thus 'Opening' the route.

And a quick Google search of his name shows this is something of a habit for the adrenaline junkie. 'Insane', 'incredible', 'crazy' are all words associated with stories of his pursuit of human flight - no wonder, he can reach speeds of up to 180kmh.

We're just thankful he's OK and chose to share his passion.
