Jumpers Free Fall Off Dubai's Tallest Residential Tower

Adrenaline-hungry base jumpers spent two weeks flying off of Dubai's tallest residential building, Princess Tower, and video of the stunt is both dizzying and gorgeous.

About 600 base jumpers had the option of jumping off a platform hanging out from the 99th floor of the tower, or performing a Dream Jump. It's a style of base jumping in which those daring enough fly outward on a zip line before free falling downward. Organized by Skydive Dubai it shows dream and base jumpers pushing one another off the platform and spinning in midair as they fly past apartment windows.

People living in the tower were entertained during the event as people flew past their windows,
