The Austrian stunt rider can then be seen spinning in circles and doing handstands on the scooter’s handle bars.
Several cameras, set up on the plane and scooter, capture the terrifying stunt from different angles.

Schachermayr is known for attempting wild and risky stunts.
He previously did a bungee jump on his beloved Vespa and even rode it through a panel of glass.
Summing up his philosophy, he said: ‘As a rule, extreme athletes are not daredevils, but top athletes with ambition and a strong motivation.’
