Uli Emanuele

Uli Emanuele, in 2014 during the third annual world wingsuit championships in Hunan, China. Uli, who died in 2016, was considered one of the most outstanding talents of his generation amongst his peers. He garnered international attention in 2015 with his carefully planned and orchestrated flight through a two meter wide hole in the mountain rock in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. Following on from that, in 2016, he completed what is considered one the most outrageous stunts ever performed in the sport by successfully executing his 'Ring of Fire' flight, also in Switzerland.This proved to be his last major project as he lost his life several months later during a practice flight in the Alps
