Watch A Man In A Wingsuit Fly Over The Pyramids Of Giza

Ancient wonder, meet modern daredevil.

Cedric Dumont toured the Pyramids of Giza Thursday by air, flying in a wingsuit for a view that many tourists and history buffs would envy.

Dumont's stunt had to be cleared with Egypt's Ministry of Defense, sponsor Red Bull noted, but it was well worth the effort.

"Flying over the pyramids has such a mystical and unmatched energy, one of the most incredible flights I have ever performed," Dumont told Red Bull.

The Belgian said on his website that adventure sport "takes me to amazing places."

We'll say.
