How many skydivers does it take to set a world record? One hundred and sixty-four, plus seven planes and Red Bull on hand to capture the action on film.
A hand-picked group of pro and amateur divers took to the skies of Chicago to attempt a new vertical freefly world record. The epic leap consisted of 164 divers flying hand-in-hand, head-down, in a group formation, during total freefall, at speeds of up to 175 mph. Anyone else sweating right now?
Following this successful dive, organiser Jon DeVore says to expect his next world record attempt in 2-3 years – and for it to involve at least 200 divers.
