BASE Jumper Joby Ogwyn About To Glide Off Everest

Joby Ogwyn is an explorer like none other.

He's climbed all seven of the highest mountains in the world and then flown off those peaks in a wing suit!

In May, he will be the first person to ever fly from the summit of Mount Everest.

"I'm gonna fly down in 10 minutes," the adventurer said on "New Day" Thursday.

You can follow his progress and watch the special “EVEREST JUMP LIVE" on Discovery in May.
