PANAMA CITY, PANAMA - DECEMBER 2015: Roberta and Noah had a total of five cameras attached to themselves in order to film the stunt, in December 2015, in Panama City, Panama.
AN ITALIAN daredevil has become the first person to fly over Panama City in a wingsuit. The stunt saw wingsuit pilot Roberta Mancino jumping out of a helicopter at 5,000ft for a fly-by of the city’s iconic ‘Screw’ building. The F&F Tower, known locally as El Tornilo - which translates to the “screw”, stands at a whopping 797ft. The 35-year-old had to battle through cloudy weather and speeds of up to 70mph to reach her landing zone at a site across the city. Since 2009 the stuntwoman has been doing wingsuit jumps around the world and had to draw on her years of experience to complete the highly technical jump.
