Millions watched the Red Bull Stratos mission live but for the first time footage has been released showing the breathtaking freefall in full through the eyes of Felix himself. It also includes the moment he almost lost control during a flat spin only to quickly recover.

On Sunday, the Austrian ascended to 128,100 feet in a stratospheric balloon and during freefall accelerated to 833.9mph, achieving Mach 1.24.

Using a camera positioned underneath his visor, viewers can now see what Felix saw.

Experience the moment Felix Baumgartner broke the sound barrier during his world-record freefall in this exclusive video.
