Roberta Mancino Flies between Two Panama Skyscrapers
Italian model and daredevil Roberta Mancino is gaining quite the reputation in the world of extreme sports. Between the time that she spends swimming with sharks and skydiving around the world, she is beginning to create a rather large viral buzz. Her latest aerial stunt consists of flying in a wingsuit between two skyscrapers in Panama that was filmed as a promotion for GoPro.
Don’t be fooled by how easy she makes this look. Flying between two buildings in a wingsuit during high wind is a challenging feat that only the most experienced skydivers are able to pull off. After the jump, Mancino took to her Facebook page to discuss the difficulties of jumping in high wind. “If you are going to fly with your wingsuit in between buildings make sure that there is not so much wind. The turbulence can be crazy! But if you decide to do it because it is the only day that you can, you better fly like little boss.”
Mancino is an award-winning skydiver, BASE jumper and wingsuit flyer who has completed over 7,000 jumps and holds a handful of world records. Her death-defying capabilities were recently featured on the big screen in the major motion picture Iron Man 3. When not jumping from the top of the tallest building that she can find, Mancino is being featured in major fashion publications such as Vogue and Vanity Fair.
