In one of the most spectacular ways to ever catch a flight, Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet succeeded in flying into the open door of a tiny light aircraft in mid-air after freefalling from the summit of the Jungfrau in the Swiss Alps.

Otherwise known as the Soul Flyers, the French duo spent several months training for the stunt organised by Red Bull.

Fugen and Reffet jumped off of a mountain in the Swiss Alps and landed inside a flying plane, with the entire stunt recorded on video.

While flying at enormous speeds, they managed to land inside the door of a Pilatus Porter aircraft - a door measuring just 1.6m wide by 1.25m high. Yes, a real plane, with a propellor that could easily slice them to shreds.

Patrick had jumped off a plane and entered another airplane while the Soulmate Flyers jumped off a mountain peak and entered an airplane.
