Joby Ogwyn flies next to Mt. Everest

According to this press release, Joby Ogwyn, whom we've featured before here and here has become the first person to fly next to Mount Everest.

He exited the plane at 29,000ft, which has been done before, but then had to land his BASE canopy at 17,000ft, which is less common. :) He also has a nasty twist on opening, looking at the trailer.

Read the article here and watch the trailer to his upcoming movie 'Higher', about the Mt. Everest adventure, below.

You can follow Joby's adventures on his blog here and on Facebook here.
