Those full loops make our suicide gibes look like a piece of cake. Looks like they generate lift which slings them upward and then using that momentum, they swing the glider directly underneath them. Doesn't seem possible. Did anyone notice the bridle cord sizes on the paragliders? They looked like 1000 lb lines each. The thing that bothered me about the loops was what happens if a gust puts you onto the bottom face of the glider and you can't get out plummeting to the earth. I hope they have a backup plan.

Gesh, if there's a way to make a paraglider malfunction, I'm sure they'll find it.
