Hi all !
After The Epic Split, The 4 years old truck driver, The Hook, and plenty more crazy videos, Volvo trucks released "The Flying Passenger".
"The Flying Passenger" is the world's first stunt featuring a truck and a paragilder. It's coming on November 29th (10:00 CET).

"In Volvo Trucks’ new Live Test, a paraglider and a Volvo FH are about to go on a breath taking journey. The truck needs to keep the paraglider in the air whilst giving it a lift uphill, on winding mountain roads. To succeed, the truck must maintain its speed. ‘The Flying Passenger’ will premiere on November 29th on Volvo Trucks’ digital platforms." (Source)



[EDIT] The video is out !

That guy's nuts! :P

Gotta love the German guy explaining to us how a dual clutch works though. I guess the average trucker doesn't know semi-intermediate mechanics anymore then?

I think I would be more scared being the truck driver than the paraglider to be honest lol, knowing it is only you keeping him in the air :P
