A Colombian wingsuit jumper broke four world records with a leap that lasted over nine minutes.
Jhonathan Florez, 29, jumped from 37,265 ft and flew for nine minutes and six seconds, reaching speeds of up to 100mph, in a wingsuit over the La Guajira desert in northern Colombia. The jump broke the record for the longest ever wing suit flight.
Florez also claimed the records for greatest horizontal distance flown in a wing suit, flying over 16.315 miles, greatest absolute distance in a wingsuit, covering 17.520 miles total and the highest ever wingsuit jump. The Colombian daredevil descended 33,000ft before pulling his parachute just 4,000ft over the ground.
“When you are up there it really feels like you are flying,” Florez said to U.K. newspaper The Telegraph, “It was great to break so many records in just one attempt.”
The professional film maker and photographer captured the stunt from start to finish using cameras attached to his back and helmet.
Florez, who lives in Florida with his wife, said he would now take a break from his daredevil antics out of respect for his wife. “My wife is not to keen on me doing them. She is understandably worried while I am up there,” he said to The Daily Mail.
“It was just an amazing feeling when I completed the jump. It was the best moment of my life,” he added after completing the jump on April 20.
The money raised from the jump will go to Colombian soldiers wounded in battle.
