Perlan Project

The scenic and highest 2.45 minutes of video footage of Airbus Perlan Mission II flight #52 on September 2, 2018. The highest altitude reached in the stratospheric wave was above 76,000 (pressure) feet which is above the U-2 record altitude of about 73,500 feet.

The high point for the pressurized high-altitude Perlan 2 glider with Chief Pilot Jim Payne and Pilot Tim Gardner was as they turned east over the turquoise waters of Lago Argentino at the one minute mark. They continue a gentle scenic turn for the next 1.45 minutes. The camera was a Garmin VIRB 360. The glare is from the sun at the extremely high altitude. The music is from Silent Partner.
