Not exactly silly or is it. I certainly wouldn't rely on a fan strapped to my back and a bag of cloth to defy gravity :)

Ha ha - probably about as close to flying like a bird as we can get though. Looks marvelous against that beautiful blue sky.

A nice angle to offer up a different view of this daredevil's recreational thrill. This blue sky is a perfect enfoldment for the thwarting of imminent potential death!

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

I would rise to these wings with pleasure but I'm afraid to get through the trip and think as to this "plane".
Best regards, Adela

Nice capture and I for one would feel you would have to have a terrific amount of silliness to take to the air like that although you have to admire those that do !
