To cap off Miles Above – the incredible webseries that follows the lives and stunts of the Red Bull Air Force team members – Miles Daisher travels to the epic land of towering rocks in the sky: Moab, Utah.

"The objective of coming to Utah with Miles [Daisher] was to go to the Fisher Towers and have some fun there – BASE jumping," says JT Holmes in the video above.

(Yes, it's a long one – but trust us, and stick around till the 14:45 mark for the most amazing BASE jump landing you'll see all year. It's one of the craziest stunts you'll ever see in human flight.)

Video Highlights

  • Sketchy flights at 3:00
  • 360º flight around the towers at 7:00
  • Miles' wingsuit backflip at 9:00
  • The most amazing landing ever at 14:45

"We're going to jump off as many places, and as many parts of these towers as possible," said 'Sketchy' Andy Lewis. "It's just [pauses] there are just a few steps to get there – and they're a little bit dangerous."

The fun starts right from the beginning around the 3:00 minute mark with a sketch jump from 'Sketchy' Andy and Miles in windy conditions, that sends the team packing for the day.

The next day they return to pristine flight conditions, and score a 360º flight around the towers (see it around the 7:00 mark.)

One of my goals in life is to see what kind of air we can explore out in front of these rocks

"Not easy to get to," said MIles Daisher of the physical demands of the vertical climb necessary to get to the summit of the 800-foot towering rock spires. "You gotta earn it."

The excitement continues with an epic gainer (backflip) from Miles around 9:00 minutes, off Moab's most iconic sandstone towers –  Fisher Towers' Titan.

"The beautiful thing about Moab is that the rocks grow straight up into the sky," said Daisher. "One of my goal's in life is to see what kind of air we can explore out in front of these rocks."
