If you're afraid of heights, look away now -- this may give you nightmares.

Footage of an Italian thrillseeker using a wingsuit to fly over an active volcano is causing a stir on the internet.

In the YouTube clip, Roberta Mancino makes the spectacular jump from 15,000ft over Chile's Villarrica stratovolcano and captures the moments she flies through sulphur-infused smoke pouring out of the crater.

Uploaded on June 9, the video has already clocked up more than 200,000 views.

An experienced skydiver, Ms Mancino has completed more than 7000 jumps -- but says this jump in particular was a long-time goal of hers.
