This happened at the Bispen jump in Romsdal, which has become a popular place for spectators to watch wingsuit pilots buzz by. Bispen is Not a beginner or intermediate jump. Only very experienced wingsuit pilots should attempt this jump. Mike had approximately 8 wingsuit BASE jumps. He was jumping with a wingsuit with two others also wearing wingsuits and all three went off one after the other with Mike going first. It was foggy at the exit point and the fog cleared before the road. One of the other jumpers was flying over the road very high and looked down and saw Mike flying past the road switchback and Mike was far below him and it looked like Mike was close to the rock feature that the switchback is built upon. Mike also looked to be flying slow. Then Mike went out of view. There were no spectators on the road and no one saw Mike's impact. From the way Mike?s body and gear was damaged it appeared as though he had done an emergency pull while still over the rock, impacting on his backside at linestretch. (on a wingsuit BASE jump, initial linestretch will usually put you on your back).
