There are several videos out there of wingsuit flyer Jeb Corliss' latest adventure, but the most complete report with the best bird's eye view may be this one from China's CCTV. Check it out.

The BBC says Corliss jumped out of a helicopter from 6,560 feet above Tianmen mountain in Hunan Province on Saturday before flying through the gap.

It was his second attempt. On the first, Corliss says, he jumped too early and had to take a detour to the other side of the mountain.
