Alexander Polli Shatters a Foam Target While Flying in a Wingsuit

On his YouTube channel, BASE jumper Alexander Polli said he has completed the "first-ever successful wingsuit target strike." In the video above, Polli rockets down a slalom course, shatters a foam marker with his left arm, and continues flying forward on his projected path. Polli said in the text below the YouTube video that he reached a speed of 155mph on the course, which is in the same location where Jeb Corliss shot his famous Grinding the Crack video. BASE jumping fans with a knowledge of that Grinding the Crack flight might point out that Corliss famously hit a target during his flight—the string attached to a balloon.
