52 Skydivers Set World Record With Choreographed Jump

An amazing video has emerged of 52 skydivers setting a new world record for a 'Head Up' flight formation over Phoenix, AZ, US. The footage is shot by participant Zachary R Sabel using a helmet-mounted camera. 

"Head Up body flight is the most difficult position to balance while being able to build formations"

The challenge, which took place on 22 November 2014, involved around 60 skydivers occupying three separate planes.  Their nationalities range from British to American, Russian, Australian, Canadian, Mexican and German.

As they pour out of their aircraft, one after the other and glide through the sky, 52 of them manage to grab each other's hands.Together, they form a remarkable upright display.
