American wingsuit pilot Jeb Corliss successfully flew through a narrow valley in eastern China this weekend.

The nearly 1,000-ft.-deep valley is only 65-ft. wide at its widest point.

Saturday afternoon Corliss jumped out of a helicopter and flew towards the valley at speeds of 100mph.  He spoke to reporters after crashing down onto a bridge near the mountain's base.

“I am really glad I was able to do it, because it was so hard,” said Corliss.  “This was so hard. This was really, really, this was the hardest thing I've ever done.”

Corliss's other jumps include the Eiffel Tower in Paris the Space Needle in Seattle and the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.
