Motorcycle Jump Over Moving Plane

Question: what’s more dangerous than a sideways flying plane going between two ramps and hovering just over the ground? Why, a motorcycle jumping over it of course.

And this ridiculous video, taken at an air show in the US last week, featuring elite stunt rider Cody Elkins on the motorcycle and aerobatic pilot Skip Stewart (he really does have the name of a daredevil pilot) in the plane, gives us just that.

Not only that, Elkins has the audacity to pull off a stunt in mid-air as the hulking great by-plane behind him gather's pace before powering through and lifting off into the sky. Slowed right down in glorious high-definition, it's worth watching again and again.

Evel Knievel eat your heart out.
