Is this world’s first BASE jump from a Mosque?

A recent trip to Istanbul afforded me some good food, a wedding from one of my best friends, some great sight seeing……. and another record jump. I have not found a video, nor heard of anyone jumping from a mosque before. This was not meant to be any kind of disrespect for anyone or anything, on the contrary…… see how beautiful a Mosque can be from all angles! Enjoy

The world’s tallest Jesus Statue! First BASE jump

YouTube player

Recently I was able to travel back to Bolivia to live out my dream of jumping the world’s tallest Jesus! I first saw the statue in 2012 when I was on a year long motorcycle tour around South America.

Another Jesus Statue in Poland was built in 2010 on top of a mound and wearing a crown making it “technically” world’s tallest, however if you only count the Jesus part of the Statue, Bolivia is bigger by 1.2 Metres. You see most Jesus statues are built at a height of 33 metres because that was the age he was when he died. For whatever reason Cristo de la Concordia has 34.20 making it the tallest.
