Watch This Fearless Stuntwoman Fly Over An Active Volcano

Just when you thought wingsuit base jumping couldn’t possibly get more extreme, Italian athlete, thrill-seeker and model Roberta Mancino decided to toss in a boiling lake of lava. 

In a promotional video posted Thursday by GoPro, Mancino is seen leaping from a helicopter at 15,000 feet and buzzing over the top of Villarrica — one of Chile’s most active volcanoes.

“[It] was insane,” she wrote in a post to Facebook, adding she could feel the volcano’s heat and turbulence, and smell its smoke.

In its post, GoPro said flying a wingsuit over an active volcano has been a longtime dream of Mancino’s. After years of training, she saw that dream come true in Chile, accompanied during the jump by professional base jumpers Sebastian Alvarezand Carlos Pedro Briceño.

Riding a shark, skydiving naked and, now, flying over a volcano — wonder what else she’s got on her bucket list?
