An Austrian skydiver has completed a remarkable stunt, somersaulting from one glider to another while travelling at 100mph. Paul Steiner, from Salzburg, climbed out of the cockpit, walked along the wing and then front rolled onto a second glider that was travelling underneath it. The daredevil then moved onto the main fuselage of the second glider, while the first glider turned upside down and flew overhead. This allowed Steiner to reach up and grab the tail fin, forming a link between the two aircrafts.

Steiner then completed the stunt by skydiving off the glider, which was flying over 2000 metres above Austria. The incredible stunt was carried out by the Red Bull skydive team.
