Here's the second plane coming in. Paul climbed out of the cockpit of the first craft, somersaulted onto the wingtip, and them climbed onto the second one. All OK so far..

Phew! He's done it! What a relief. Afterwards, Paul, from the Red Bull Flying Team, said it looked smooth but admitted things never go to plan.

"It was pretty difficult. I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner," he said when back on the ground. Hmmm, good advice Paul.
