Daredevils Get Birds-Eye View of New York City

Andy Farrington/Red Bull via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- It’ s a bird! It’s a plane!

No, actually, it’s the Red Bull Air Force.

Five members of the daring team put on their wing suits and soared above New York City on Sunday, catching a birds-eye view of the concrete jungle.

The elite athletes took the plunge from the southern tip of Manhattan and glided two miles in two minutes before landing on a barge in the Hudson River.

The stunt was carried out to promote the Bethpage Air Show in Long Island next weekend.
