The talented duo performed the stunt at the 2014 Cameron Air Show in the city of Missouri city of Cameron in the US. It involves Elkins using a ramp to jump a sizable gap occupied by Stewart in a bi-plane.

That in itself sounds insane, but it’s only when you watch the event unfold at such a low speed do you appreciate just how insane. That bi-plane is only feet away from the ground and the launch ramp, while the gap between the motorbike and propeller is only slightly larger. Evil Knievel would be proud.

Cody Elkins holds the Guinness World Record for the longest moving quad bike jump. The FMX rider jumped over four cars, including a Bentley Continental GT and Porsche Panamera, for a total distance of 22.3-metres in 2013.

Skip Stewart is one of the most experienced stunt pilots in the world. His stunt show, which involve dangerous aerial manoeuvres performed in one of his two modified Pitts airplanes, has a huge following.

We’ll let the short video below do the rest of the talking.
