When Miles met Felix

13.06.2016

Year 7 student Miles Dunscombe has recently returned from a trip of a lifetime to meet Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner.

“I visited Austria in June to meet some Red Bull athletes and take a trip with HeliAustria. I flew in a helicopter with Felix Baumgartner an Austrian skydiver, daredevil and BASE jumper. I have also visited the Red Bull headquarters at Hanger 7 in Salzburg to see Felix’s capsule. Felix is best known for his participation in the Red Bull Stratos project, in which he jumped to Earth from a helium balloon in the stratosphere in 2012.”
