XRW Night Jumps at Skydive Arizona

“This photo is a bit cryptic, but when you are flying a tiny little high performance canopy right along a really-damn-big wingsuit, in the dark, a few thousand feet above a bunch of thorny, prickly things, your attention might not be completely on the camera work. Nik Daniel (canopy pilot) and Alex Swindle (wingsuiter) completed the first night-dock XRW (to the best of our knowledge) on the night of January 11th, in the dark skies above Skydive Arizona in Eloy, AZ”  – Blue Skies Magazine
