Interlayer tunneling in graphite mesa-type structures is studied at a strong in-plane magnetic field H up to 55 T and low temperature T = 1.4 K. The tunneling spectrum dI/dV vs. V has a pronounced peak at a finite voltage V 0. The peak position V 0 increases linearly with H. To explain the experiment, we develop a theoretical model of graphite in the crossed electric E and magnetic H fields. When the fields satisfy the resonant condition E = vH, where V is the velocity of the two-dimensional Dirac electrons in graphene, the wave functions delocalize and give rise to the peak in the tunneling spectrum observed in the experiment.
