obsessive wingsuit flight through a hole in a mountain

(Video link here.) Wingsuit pilot Alexander Polli saw a hole in a mountain’s rocky outcropping and just had to try flying through it.  He practiced aiming and controlling his flight over and over until he just went ahead and…flew…right…..THROUGH…

…at 155 miles per hour.

Polli “hopes his success will inspire others not only to ‘climb over their mountains,’ but to also fly right through them!”
