This Thrill-Seeking Stuntwoman Flew Over An Active Volcano In A Wingsuit


If you're looking to spice up your life, trying something new typically does the trick. But if you're one of those people who has managed to do nearly everything under the sun, including skydiving and zip-lining, options are limited...

So, what do you do? Well, you could start by convincing yourself to book a spontaneous trip out to New Zealand. If that seems a bit too calm and serene for your taste, take notes from athlete and stuntwoman Roberta Mancino.

In a recent video uploaded to YouTube by GoPro, we're introduced to Mancino performing perhaps one of her most thrill-seeking (and super-dangerous) stunts yet. Her gear needed to complete the stunt didn't consist of much.

All she needed was a wingsuit, a GoPro and the fearlessness instilled in anyone crazy enough to actually do this. Equipped with the wingsuit, Mancino was able to fly over an active volcano for the world to see.

The video's description reads,

Flying a wingsuit over an active volcano has long been a dream for Roberta Mancino. After years of training, she embarked on a mission to Chile's Villarrica stratovolcano to fly through the sulfur-infused smoke that pours from its crater.

I can't help but wonder what it could be like to soar 15,000 feet over an unpredictable mountain of chaos that is a volcano. Luckily, Mancino took to her personal Facebook page to briefly describe the experience.

She wrote,

We felt the heat, the turbulence and the smell of the smoke, too.

As for the rest, well, you'll just have to witness it for yourself! Check out the video above for a closer look.
