Hilarious moment seven daredevils strap themselves onto one paraglider to fly over the French countryside

  • The seven daredevils performed the amazing feat in Annecy, France
  • The two-seater glider has a 1,130 sq ft fabric wing 
  • Bastien Langlois captures the flight on a GoPro camera on a selfie stick 
  • They glide through the air at 5,413 feet in a daring stunt that lasted 40 minutes

Seven daredevils simultaneously hung from a two-seater paraglider in a breathtaking stunt over the beautiful French countryside.

Every moment of the incredible feat, that took place over Annecy, southeastern France, was captured with the help of a GoPro camera on a selfie stick and filmed by Bastien Langlois who was one of the seven men taking part.

The start of the video shows Bastien filming the huge 1,130 sq ft fabric wing that is spread across a green hill as it is prepared for the phenomenal feat. 

Underneath a dazzling blue sky the seven men drag the enormous wing a little way to gain momentum. 

The pilot in the harness of the two-seater glider leaves the ground first. 

The six other men underneath, including Bastien with his GoPro camera, are then carried into the air as another camera from the ground films the successful take-off.

Bastien looks energized and delighted as the seven men take flight. 

The men excitedly look at one another, with one on the left daring to look down while the man on the far right gazes up, taking in the breathtaking moment.

They all seem remarkably relaxed as they travel over the countryside with stunning views of lakes and mountains below.

At one point they give a peace sign and grin happily for the camera. 

Gliding through the air at 5,413 feet, the seven men were reportedly ecstatic that they pulled off the daring stunt which lasted a whole 40 minutes. 

As they come into land, a number of people on the ground come rushing forward to provide assistance if necessary, but the team land faultlessly, safely back on the ground.

Videographer Michaël Kreins, 30, said: ‘The pilots were well prepared for take-off and everything is as it would be with a conventional two-seater.’

Adrenaline junkie Bastien added: ‘The flight was exceptional. We had a real laugh the whole way through.

‘I was particularly happy to have shared this flight with the whole team!’
