A daredevil pilot passed the Corinth Canal in Greece with flying colours as he showed off his skills performing tricks across the sky.

57-year-old Peter Besenyei glided over the canal which is 6.4 kilometres long, performing dramatic manoeuvers and risky tricks.

The aerobatic expert’s plane had a wingspan of 8 metres – not much less than the 21.4 metres that the Corinth Canal measures at its narrowest point.

After crossing the canal, he continued his flight under the old bridge of Corinthos and performed a grand finale of impressive loop-de-loops around the bridge.

Peter has previously worked as an aerobatics flying instructor and once completed an upside down flight under the Chain Bridge in Budapest.
