Two British pilots recently completed an incredible feat, becoming the first two people in the world to fly their planes in formation through a 25-foot tall hangar at 185 mph.

Paul Bonhomme and Steve Jones have been flying together for the past 17 years. They belong to Red Bull’s Matadors Aerobatic Team and often perform at air shows.

The Red Bull Barnstorming stunt was meticulously planned and took place at Llanbedr Airfield in North Wales.

Red Bull has more on how Bonhomme and Jones pulled the whole thing off.
