Now, just imagine being a Red Bull athlete equipped with LED light suits and a free high-speed wind tunnel to experiment with.

Well, Red Bull “Air Force” athletes Jeffrey Provenzano and Amy Chmeleck recently performed all sorts of crazy skydiving stunts/aerobatics while wearing glowing LED light suits inside of a wind tunnel.
