Staring down a sheer precipice into a deep abyss with your head spinning, every fiber in your body tries to resist the edge. Meet the men and women who don't. Overcoming their fears, they step off into thin air and fly like birds, hurtling at impossible speeds and gliding across beautiful, rolling landscapes. In the words of one base jumper: "It's only when you leave the cliff - when you're flying - that you really feel at home." This program is a startling, adrenaline-filled insight into the revolutionary new sport that brings the dream of human flight alive.
