Soaring across the sky at nearly 2,000ft (600m) above sea level, at a speed of 200kts (370kph) and against the clock is something only top pilots will ever achieve. So we’ve gathered together the best wingshot pictures we can find to give you a taste of what the view is like during such extreme flying.
Watch out live on Red Bull TV for the 2015 Red Bull Air Race World Championship on October 17 and 18 in Las Vegas where these pilots will be fighting to become King of the Skies.
Checking out a Malaysian mosque
Top pilots get to fly in some awesome locations. Here's Péter Besenyei – known as the 'Godfather of the Red Bull Air Race' because of his experience – flying in front of the Putra Mosque, Malaysia.
Some good navigation
Some precise navigation is needed, as the Godfather again shows his prowess as he squeezes under the Seri Gemilang bridge in Malaysia.
Just hope he doesn’t get travel sickness
Of course, suffering from travel sickness is just not an option.
Air race pilots get to see some incredible scenery
But if you can handle that, then you get to see places from angles most of us will never see. This is Matthias Dolderer, who first competed in Red Bull Air Race in 2009, as he flies over the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park in Utah, United States.
From some amazing angles
And here's two time World Champion Kirby Chambliss giving us a look at the Abu Dhabi skyline alongside fellow pilots Pete McLeod and Francois Le Vot.
They make big towns look small
Rovinj in Croatia looks tiny looking down the wing of a plane.
Flying over spectacular oceans
The ocean looks spectacular from thousands of feet up.
Formation flying with friends
If the views get boring, then Air Race pilots also get to play with their friends. Check out these top Air Race pilots Nigel Lamb, Paul Bonhomme and Matthias Dolderer over the cliffs of Dover.
A bit of upside down flying of course
This may not be taken along a wing, but we had to include an upside down shot. Why? Well, look at it. German pilot, Matthias Dolderer in Putrajaya, Malaysia.
