VIDEO: Italian Pilot Makes Aviation History Flying Through Two Tunnels

By

“Dario Costa just became the first person to fly a plane through a tunnel, wait! TWO tunnels and we are literally speechless. His unprecedented flight through Istanbul’s Çatalca Tunnels was seriously impressive with cross winds between the tunnels and air bumps inside them testing his skills – but ending the flight in the aviation history books was SO worth it.”

Next level stunt flying out of Turkey where 41-year-old Italian pilot Dario Costa flew his custom-modified Zivko Edge 540 race plane through the twin Çatalca tunnels along the Northern Marmara Highway.

CNN reports Costa set five records with his feat: longest tunnel flown through with an airplane, first airplane flight through a tunnel, longest flight under a solid obstacle, first airplane flight through two tunnels and first airplane takeoff from a tunnel. Only the first was officially recognized with a certificate from Guinness.

Laser focus, pinpoint precision, flawless execution. Congratulations Dario, this was incredible:
