Do you remember the jump into the sky above the Yunyang Longgang scenic spot on April 9th, 2016 by Zhang Shupeng, the first wingsuit flyer in China? Do you remember the excitement of the tourists cheering at the Cloud-covered Bridge? Yes, that was the first time that the Chinese successfully challenged the world’s first cantilevered glass covered bridge, by wingsuit flying.

還記得2016年4月9日雲陽龍缸景區上空,中國翼裝飛行第一人張樹鵬那代表國人雄姿的縱身一跳嗎?還記得當時雲端廊橋上游客們激動不已的高聲歡呼嗎?對,那就是中國人首次以翼裝飛行的方式成功挑戰世界第一懸挑玻璃廊橋——雲端廊橋的歷史場景。

Time flies, and the flying man returns! Two years after the moment which made Chinese people proud, Zhang Shupeng, the first person in China to do wingsuit flying, will once again come to Chongqing Yunyang Longgang scenic spot, with the world's top wingsuit pilots from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Chile, and Venezuela to have a wingsuit formation flight for the first time in Chongqing.

 時光荏苒,飛人歸來!在距離這一屬於中國人的驕傲瞬間2年之後,中國翼裝飛行第一人張樹鵬將再次來到重慶雲陽龍缸景區,與來自美國,英國,加拿大,智利,委內瑞拉五個國家的世界頂級翼裝飛行員們一起,在巴渝大地上空首次集體進行翼裝編隊飛行。

重慶首次大規模編隊翼裝飛行 集體挑戰雲端廊橋

Zhang Shupeng was the first Asian flying man to challenge the bridge on April 9th, 2016 in Longgang. The wingsuit flying show on April 15th will be the first collective formation wingsuit flying performance in Chongqing. There will be a larger number of participants, more difficulties in performing in formations, and it will also last longer.

與2016年4月9日龍缸上空亞洲飛人張樹鵬首次單人翼裝飛行挑戰廊橋相比,4月15日即將上演的翼裝飛行表演,將是重慶歷史上首次集體編隊翼裝飛行表演,更是在全國知名旅遊地標上空進行的超刺激驚險飛行活動,不僅參與人數眾多,編隊表演難度加大,而且滯空時間增長,可謂看點頗多。

In order to increase the visibility of the air show, the formation pilots will form the “人” and “一” formations in the air for the audience to appreciate. Afterwards, the formation will start diving from high altitude, and at a speed of about 200km/h through the cloud-covered bridge. Finally, when their altitude has dropped to about 300 meters, the parachutes will be sequentially opened and they will land on the preset floating platform on the Shisun River of Longgang to complete the challenge.

為了加大此次飛行表演的觀賞度,編隊飛行員將分別在空中組成“人”字和“一”字隊形,供觀眾遊客欣賞。隨後編隊將由高空開始俯衝,並以約200公里/小時的速度,極速掠過雲端廊橋。最後,在飛行高度下降到300米左右時依次打開降落傘,先後降落在龍缸石筍河水面預設浮臺上完成挑戰。

At present, among the athletes who have been confirmed to participate in this wingsuit flying show, there are many Hollywood bigwigs of wingsuit flying and professional flyers who used to be helicopter and warplane pilots. The 37-year-old James Boole, the wingsuit flying photographer of the Hollywood movie Point Break, is not only a top-level low-altitude wingsuit pilot, but also a high-altitude photographer. This time, James will personally carry out the photography to record the exciting moments of the "new point breakers" challenging the cloud-covered bridge by wingsuit flying.

目前,已經確定參加此次翼裝飛行表演的運動員中,不乏好萊塢翼裝大腕和出身直升機、戰鬥機駕駛員的職業翼裝飛行選手。現年37歲,曾擔綱美國好萊塢極限大片《極盜者》翼裝飛行空中攝影師的詹姆斯·波爾(James Boole),不僅是一名頂級水準的低空翼裝飛行員,還是一名高空攝影師。曾參加2004年莫斯科奧斯坦金諾電視塔低空跳和2010年義大利Mount Brento 21-way懸崖跳等多項低空定點跳傘,創造世界紀錄而被世人熟知。此次,詹姆斯將親自執行空中翼裝環繞跟拍任務,以好萊塢全球最頂級的高空翼裝飛行拍攝技巧,全程記錄“新極盜者們”翼裝挑戰雲端廊橋的精彩瞬間。

The most legendary one is Sebastian Alvarez from South America, Chile. He began surfing at the age of 12. At the age of 18, he put down his surfboard and put on a uniform to become a pilot of the Chilean Air Force. However, after experiencing wingsuit flying, he fell in love with it. Currently, Sebastian has completed more than 450 fixed-parachute jumps and more than 400 wingsuit flights.

尤具傳奇色彩的則是來自南美洲智利的塞巴斯蒂安·阿爾瓦雷茲(Sebastian Alvarez)。他12歲開始練習衝浪,並代表智利參加青年錦標賽。18歲時,放下衝浪板的塞巴斯蒂安換上軍裝,成為一名智利空軍的直升飛機和F-16戰鬥機飛行員。但在接觸了翼裝飛行後便一發不可收拾,從此徹底愛上翼裝飛行運動。目前,塞巴斯蒂安已完成了超過450次定點跳傘和400餘次翼裝飛行。
