The Kid Should See This

202 skydivers set a world record over Perris, California

On Sept. 29, 2015, day 4 of a multi-day jump event, 202 skydivers joined together like a snowflake at 7,000 feet (2,130 meters) to set a world record for the largest sequential skydiving formation. Here’s that record-setting jump:

From the Riverside Press-Enterprise:

That sort of formation involves different groups coming together to form a gigantic lattice of airsuit-clad humanity.

The group that pulled off the feat, which smashes the old record of 122, included skydivers from 24 different countries, a sort of United Nations in the air that included Russians, Brazilians, Italians, Germans and U.S. jumpers..

With so many skilled skydivers in town, the entire team attempted to set additional records. The breathtaking video featured at the top of the page, their first jump on day 6, is one of many videos filmed over Perris, California by Sequential Games. Click HD + full screen.
