Athlete and wingsuit pioneer Jeb Corliss had a career-long dream of flying alongside the Pyramids of Giza.
After years of ideating, planning, navigating heath concerns, + acquiring permissions, he was finally able to bring this vision to life.
With this feat, wingsuiting within feet of the Khufu + Khafre pyramids, he became the first human to skydive + proximity fly both.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the biggest Egyptian pyramid and the tomb of Fourth Dynasty pharaoh Khufu.
Built in the early 26th century BC during a period of around 27 years, the pyramid is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.
Initially standing at 146.6 metres (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years, surpassed by Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England in 1311 and the Washington Monument in 1884.
Jeb Corliss has jumped from sites including Paris's Eiffel Tower, Seattle's Space Needle, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro and the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur.
He lives in Venice, California.
