Julien Millot had this idea to come back to the Couloir de l’Ensa in Chamonix with a crazy project – to fly a wingsuit underneath a highline. It would be a technical trick but doable, from what the wingsuiters said.
We rigged the highline in the sunset and made everything ready for the morning. Wingsuiters were allowed to fly a short time early morning before leaving Chamonix sky free for paragliders during the day.
The next morning, the first lift arrived on top of the Brévent to unleash the first flying men. The ballet could start! Men walked the line while others flew under. It was madness! For the last run, Julien invited one of the top french speed riders to play and fly under his feet. Arnaud Longobardi was quite exited to rush under his highlining friend too.
The action was real quick and the sequence was definitely the best option regarding the curve Arnaud took with his wing. I was literally amazed when I released the trigger. I knew it would be a perfect shot once the sequence was made.
