Brett Hazlett's Alpine Hyperlapse

It was last year when Canadian competition pilot Brett Hazlett had an accident in Turkey, finding himself lying on the side of a ten-thousand-foot desert mountain, unable to move, struggling to breath. He's a tough cookie though and although he couldn't walk for five months, Brett is flying again and his latest POV footage shows why; the video truly captures what's so great about flying paragliders and racing.

Check it out.
