Five daredevils have made a rare wingsuit flight over the New York City skyline.

After soaring over the city, they came in to land on a barge moored in the Hudson River.

The red Bull Airforce team travelled about 3 kilometres in 2 minutes.

They jumped from a plane about 2500 metres above the city and sped at up to 190kmh during freefall, passing by defining buildings of the Financial District, before heading uptown and on to their landing spot on the Hudson.

"We got only one shot at this," said Jeff Provenzano, who completed the jump with fellow Red Bull Air Force members (and New York natives) Sean MacCormac and Amy Chmelecki, alongside team manager Jon Devore and videographer Andy Harrington, who also jumped.
