World's Craziest Stunts
Stunt show at the Cattle Market in Salisbury.
These stunt cars are made to catch fire for a show. That's a serious ball of flames in the air over the crazy car crash.
American rally car driver Ken Block set a new world record for distance jumping in a rally car. Block flew his 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally car a wacko 171ft (about 52 meters) off a special ramp that was built at the Lake Elsinore Motocross park in Southern California. The jump was made for 'Stunt Junkies', a Discovery Channel TV-series which conceptualizes, builds and executes crazy stunts like this.
Eskil Ronningsbakken is a professional stunt and challenges his destiny everyday. Very few people could do the things he does. Normally, this daredevil does his tricks on the height of about 1000 feet. And without a security rope.

Flying at an altitude of 2,600 feet, former Swiss air force fighter pilot Yves Rossy — aka “Fusion Man or Jet-man” — leaped from a plane wearing the contraption he'd spent 5 years designing and building. With retractable wings and 4 jet engines strapped to his back, Yves took flight through the Alps at 186 mph, did a series of figure 8's, then folded his wings and parachuted to ground.
Famous Austrian climber and photographer, Heinz Zak threw an incredible highline performance walking on a string for a full 30 meters, between two giant sandstone towers, in the Czech Republic, the Starosta and Starostova (Mayor and Lady Mayor).

Alain Robert , known as 'French Spiderman' always insists on the best possible view and is happy to scale some of the world's most teetering skyscrapers to secure it. One of his latest visits was at the 185 metre-high Abu Dhabi Investment Authority Building and, opting for the al fresco route, scuttled up the 35 storeys in a record 63 minutes, as tens of thousands of spectators craned their necks far below. He has also been in Hong Kong, Madrid and many other buildings around the world.
