The Nazca Lines were the scene of an amazing flyby a 2.700 meters high, with a parachute
There are many theories that state that the Nazca were the first men to fly. Some anthropologists and historians find it impossible to believe that they have drawn so perfect and huge geoglyphs to their gods for rain, without having had an aerial view of them. There is talk of balloons made of cotton and coal, giant kites and even men with feathers.
The main motivation of Cedric Dumont, renowned skydiver and BASE jumper, who in 2012 stunned the world by jumping from Gocta waterfall in Peru, and Jhonathan Florez, bearer of several world records of skydiving and BASE jumping, flying in Nazca wine of these theories and today it is a fact.
They became the first paratroopers in about flying over the Nazca Lines wearing a costume with wings, at 2,700 feet, flying over the Nazca desert vastness for more than two minutes at a speed of 190 kilometers per hour.
Geometric designs and huge drawings of animals were the setting for a fly by parachute. A 450 kilometers south of Lima, Peru is the Nazca Desert, a vast plain of sand and stone. There are clearly visible lines on its surface, which has close roads seem long, but from the air are discovered as huge geometric designs and animal designs.
Archeologists, ethnologists and anthropologists have studied this culture for decades to try to understand the purpose of these figures. The most common hypothesis states that were created for the gods could see from the sky. Since 1994, the Committee of UNESCO has inscribed Lines and Geoglyphs of Nasca and Pampas de Jumana as World Heritage.
