Fred, your diagnosis in the title of this post is dead on.

Dead on a cliff one day, methinks.

Splat is right. From Wikipedia (WiSBASE - Wing Suit Base Jumping):

'One technique is proximity flying, which is flying close to the faces and ridges of mountains. Ten people died WiSBASE jumping in 2011.'

These things glide like a Simonized Crowbar. Then they expect emergency personnel (like me in my previous life) to put our butts on the line to retrieve what's left of their sorry, broken or dead a$$es...

Ooooh! Can I be Dr. Fred now? grin

These guys must know on some level that they are going to live short lives. Its better to burn out, than it is to fade.
