Editorial Reviews

Airdate 10/11/09 Only the most extreme of the extreme sportsmen would do this: don "wingsuits," jump off mountain tops, and glide at 140 miles per hour to the ground. That's what Steve Kroft witnessed from some of the highest peaks in Norway -- "birdmen" diving off a cliff and free falling until the air inflates the wings of their nylon suits. Not to be missed: the sound a human birdman makes on a "fly-by" over your head at 150 mph.

I loved all three segments of 60 minutes of Going to Extremes but I guess CBS is too cheap to offer all three segments on one dvd. Selling it for 18 bucks for one 12 minute segment is nuts. I wanted to purchase it, but I hope to find it somewhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking Birdmen January 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is one of the most breathtaking videos I have ever watched, and as a former parachutist I found it totally fascinating. I bought the DVD after replaying this episode on my DVR several times. The scenery is unbelievable and the base jumping will give you goose bumps. The HD picture is fantastic on a big screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birdmen/60Minutes DVD December 28, 2009
Verified Purchase
The footage on this dvd is excellent and watching this story on dvd is much better than a TIVO replay. As for the flying these guys do and the Norwegian landscape . . . both are best described with superlatives.
