Flying The Eiger: Making Of Jump4Heroes Eiger Wingsuit Formation BASE Jump

You've seen the Flying The Eiger film, now watch the exclusive behind-the-scenes feature showing how it was made.
Flying The Eiger: Making Of Jump4Heroes Eiger Wingsuit Formation BASE Jump

Featuring loads of extra jumps, stunning footage of the Swiss Alps and interviews with Jump4Heroes team members, this 15 minute film uncovers the military planning and team work involved in staging a jump as intimidating and technically challenging as from the Eiger's Mushroom on its North Face.

Pump it up into glorious HD as the team build up their formation flying from the High Nose and Via Ferrata exit points in the Lauterbrunnen valley before jumping from 15,000ft above the Eiger's East Ridge from a BOHAG helicopter. Once the practise is over, it's time to face the Eiger, to fly their dream lines, and the filming of the action promo to help raise awareness of the fantastic work and support offered by The Royal British Legion.

Jump4Heroes get to fly one of their dream lines in their wingsuits along the infamous and dominating north face of the Eiger in the Swiss Alps. As the movie says, celebrating the British Armed Forces, the team bowed their heads and, stood in the vast enormity of the mountainous environment, undertook a 2 minute silence in memory of all servicemen past and present. Perched on the edge of the 'murderous wall' on the Eiger, they took their exit positions and leapt in formation.

The team, all veterans of Afghanistan, flew in an arrowhead wingman formation; Warrant Officer Spencer Hogg, with the Chemring smoke on his ankle, flying the point slot with Sergeant Deane Smith and Major Alastair Macartney swooping to their close proximity wingman positions.

Raising awareness for the Armed Forces and their families, the team's wingsuits bear the Poppy logo. At speeds of approximately 130 mph they fly in tight formation while a cineflex helicopter mounted gyro stabilised camera system tracked their progress.
