Fun Post: Record-breaking video: 101 female skydivers set free fall record


Published on Jul 15, 2013
101 female skydivers have set a new record, as they leapt from planes to form the pattern of a flower in mid-air above the town of Kolomna in Russia. The skydivers from the all-women Pearls of the Sky team dedicated the jump to former captain Irina Sinitsina, who died last year in a group skydiving stunt in California. Sinitsina had led the team to breaking the previous Russian record of an 88-person flower pattern free fall in July 2012, and this time, the team left one space open in the centre of the formation to represent their “missing petal”. Report by Sophie Foster.
