Video: A backflip, a stunt plane and a guy walking a high line

Jul 12, 2016

Once upon a time, doing a backflip on a motocross bike impressed people.

But the thing with stunts is that you have to keep upping the ante. So it became a double backflip. Then a triple backflip. Choreographed simultaneous backflips with pyrotechnics.

How to keep the fans from yawning? How about jumping over a stunt plane? Oh wait, that's been done.

And that brings us to this video. Rider Jimmy Fitzpatrick, stunt pilot Melissa Andrzejewski and high line walker Sketchy Andy Lewis teamed up for this three-way stunt.

The only question now: What's next?
