This is the moment a daredevil paraglider captures stunning aerial footage of the famous pyramids in Egypt before swerving over to the Sphinx.

Yanis Terzis, 35, from Campinas, Brazil filmed himself gliding over the famous Egyptian pyramids in Cairo, the tallest of which is 481 feet high.

Using his paramotor, Yanis was able to take in the incredible sights and he just had to simply manoeuvre his craft in the direction of flight.

Breathtaking footage shows him casually zooming through the air towards a giant pyramid.

He edges nearer and nearer and seems dangerously close to smashing into the pyramid but his feet end up just skimming the top. 

Yanis then swerves down towards the Sphinx which stands at 66 feet high, showing off the incredible statue from a whole new angle. 

The footage cuts out just as it appears Yanis is coming in to land nearby.   

Clinic administrator Yanis is a skilled flier and he’s used to soaring through the air in many climates, however seeing the pyramids from above was unlike any other experience.

Yanis said: ‘I participated in a paramotor event that was allowed to fly over the pyramids, the Sphinx, and other monuments.

‘There are some precautions that you need to know, like wind direction during the flight, so you can avoid flying behind the monuments where the wind is.

‘Know how to control your wing and check your equipment before launch. These are some basic precautions to avoid common incidents.

‘The video has been shared a lot. Most of the comments are positive, saying how amazing it is and people were asking if it was legal to do that flight.’ 

Yanis posted the breathtaking footage on Instagram and TikTok and is has been viewed at least 4,000 times
