Fly of the Angel - Castelmezzano (PZ) ItalyDownload
Castelmezzano/Basilicata/Italy - Aug 02, 2009 - Fly of the Angel. The two towns of Pietrapertosa and Castelmezzano in the Italian Dolomites decided they wanted to attract more tourists.
One suggested it was a shame they could not fly to the other village - and the idea of the "Flight of the Eagles" device - a mile-long metal cable suspended between two peaks - was born. Those willing to take up the challenge hang from a harness connected to the steel rope and then jump off from a special platform to travel across the valley which is 500m below.
Riders can reach speeds of up to 90mph.
