This is the incredible moment a wingsuit  flyer navigates his way through a narrow cave at speeds of 155 miles per hour.

Flyer Alexander Polli cuts through the air  above a rugged mountainside in Spain.

The jaw-dropping video was uploaded to  YouTube by Epic TV yesterday.

It begins with Polli jumping from a  helicopter, which hovers above the Roca Foradaad Mountains in Montserrat,  Spain.

Polli seamlessly pulls off the move and flies  directly through the narrow opening of the cave –  barely wider than  him.

The Italian-Norwegian athlete said he hoped  his success at his sport inspires others not only to ‘climb over  their  mountains, but also to fly right through them.’

Wingsuit flying sees athletes slice through  the air using a special jumpsuit,  called a wingsuit, which adds surface area to  the human body to enable a significant increase in lift.

In November 2012, Polli became the first  jumper to succesfully strike a wingsuit target.

It was made of foam and around 10 ft  tall.
