No, These People Flying Over Manhattan Aren't Superheroes

Posted: Updated:

They had the permits -- and the guts.

Five Red Bull Air Force Wingsuit Flyers skydived over Manhattan at 120 miles per hour and then landed on a barge in the Hudson River Sunday.

The daredevilry (watch above) was to trumpet the 2014 Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach in Long Island, New York, over Memorial Day weekend.

In a press release obtained by The Huffington Post, Red Bull noted that this was all legal -- which unfortunately couldn't be said for the stunt pulled by the gents who BASE jumped from the top of 1 World Trade Center last year.
