Even when you've got an airplane between you and the "Wild Blue Yonder", the brute strength and force of nature is enough to toss you around! But in extreme open-air sports like paragliding and hang gliding, it's just you and your understanding of weather versus temperamental Mother Nature.

These three adventurers around the globe get themselves in sink-or-swim situations but thankfully, walk away from these midair crises older, wiser, and with some scrapes to prove it!

Some Rivers Are Better Left Un-Crossed

Some Rivers Are Better Left Un-Crossed

Every time our roads flood we see unfortunate souls try their luck at Mother Nature's water casino and pay dearly. The 4wd 4x4 Australia rescue group had successfully crossed this small stream under normal conditions so the rising, angry waters didn't scare them as much as they should. One swept-away SUV later, we hope these older-but-wiser drivers have learned a sad but life-saving lesson! In a nutshell: Six inches of still water is enough to fry your steering ability and even stall your ride, leaving you trapped. One foot of water is enough to float your vehicle (say goodbye, folks!). Two feet of rushing water will sweep away any vehicle—from SUVs to sedans and even heavy lifted pickup trucks! Like the National Weather Service says, "Turn Around Don't Drown". View Now
