Wingsuit jumps over the North and SouthPole

Back in April 2006, Spaniards Santi, Toni and Alvaro from Project Alas made history by jumping the North Pole in their PF Vampire 1 wingsuits.
In March 2007 they repeated this feat on the other side of the globe, by flying their PF Vampire 2 wingsuits over Antarctica.

Sadly the extreme cold froze the still-camera on the jump, but the videocameras kept working.
Almost two years late, RedBull AirForce has finaly uploaded a short video of that jump to their youtube account for us to enjoy.

Be sure to check out the Proyecto Alas media gallery for some nice pictures off their jumps into some of the most extreme locations on the planet.
