ADVENT CALENDAR: Can you guess what’s behind DOOR NUMBER 8? ??

Advent Calendar 2017


TO celebrate the most wonderful time of the year, First News is running an online advent calendar on First News Live! until Christmas Day.

We’ve got 25 festive treats wrapped up in the form of fun videos, celebrity shout-outs, Christmassy galleries (prepare for a parade of pups in Santa hats) and other surprises, ready and waiting for you! All you have to do is open the new “door” each day.


Oh, nothing much – just a video of wingsuit flyers jumping off a mountain and then flying in through the door of a moving plane! ???

Our jaws hit the floor when we saw this film of Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen jumping off Jungfrau mountain in the Swiss Alps. The French flyers launched themselves into the air from the top of the 4,158m (13,640ft) mountain, and timed their flight to perfection
so that they could enter the tiny door of a Pilatus Porter aircraft.

“When we started to train, we thought it would be easier, to be honest,” says Reffet. “Then we realised that it was quite a technical and mental challenge.”

Seriously, if you watch one video today, make sure it’s this one. Watch it above.
