Human Red Arrows (with Wingsuits!)

Inspired by the UK Royal Air Force's Red Arrows [beware: self-starting audio] aerial acrobatic team, a team of daredevils strive to emulate the stunts using only wing suits:

The team leap from a plane at 13,000ft and fly inches apart as they glide to earth at 120mph with smoke canisters strapped to their ankles. [...]

The extreme sport of wingsuit jumping started in 2002 but has grown in popularity and evolved into formation sky-diving.

The team - called Topgun' - has members from Denmark, Sweden, Britain and Holland and jumps all over Europe in formations including up to 16 divers.

The bellbottoms you see are called booties. It's extra fabric you can put tension on and use as a type of sail and produce forward motion and lift.
