Ben Borger sets distance record for wingsuit flight

WWWN reader gkdave pointed us to the Army Golden Knights' official webpage, which has an update on Ben Borgers record flight:

Everything went as planned while in flight, and SSG Borger exited the C-17 at 0749 and landed safely at approximately 0756. He traveled a total of 11.5 miles and now holds the world record for greatest distance traveled while in freefall. SSG Borger was in freefall for 6 minutes 35 seconds, just short of the current world record of 6:48.

Congrats Ben, that's a lot of miles covered!
