Professional American skydiver and BASE jumper Jeb Corliss successfully staged his “Human Arrow” spectacle by slashing through a target suspended above the Great Wall of China Sunday.

Fastened into a wingsuit, the 40-year-old stuntman dove from a helicopter 1,830 m (6,000 ft.) above the ground, flew through the air at 193 km/h (120 m.p.h.), and soared headfirst into the bull’s eye, Global News reports.

The challenge was initially planned for Saturday, but was rescheduled because of dangerous winds.

“I’m not about doing death-defying stuff anymore,” Corliss told NBC News. “That’s not the point.”

The daredevil has also completed stunts at other sites including Paris’ Eiffel Tower, Seattle’s Space Needle, the status of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro and the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur.
