On September 28, 2013, Jeb Corliss, one of the world's foremost and best-known wingsuit pilots and BASE-jumpers, successfully completed what he says, 'was the hardest thing I've ever done'.
Dubbed the Flying Dagger, Corliss jumped out of an airplane and flew through a narrow crack in the Jianglang mountains in China's Zhejian Province at approximately 100 mph (160 km/h). The fissure is only about 60 feet (18 m) wide at the top and 15 feet (4.5 m) at the bottom.

The stunt was extremely technical and saw Jeb fly more than 900 ft through the mountain's 'three fingers'. After emerging through the crack, Corliss had to deploy his parachute at just 300 ft of altitude.

In a video interview with NBC's Behind the Wall, Corliss said of the jump:
"That was the single most technical jump from exit, to going through, to deployment, to then turning, to getting to the landing area. Literally split second every single step of the way. And when I landed at the landing area and I wasn't hurt, I was like, 'that is about as close to as impossible… I cannot believe that just happened.'"
