useless facts (but interesting) about the record

A new world record has been set at the Florida Skydiving Center at Lake Wales, Florida USA on November 21st, 2007. One hundred parachutists linked up under parachute to form the largest parachute diamond formation ever created. The parachutists came from 14 countries to participate on the record skydive.

The skydivers utilized five aircraft, the first dropping nine jumpers from an altitude of 20,000 feet. The second dropped the next 27 jumpers from an altitude of 18,000 feet. The third aircraft dropped
jumpers from 16,000 feet and the final two aircraft dropped the remaining jumpers from 13,000 feet. The formation took approximately 11 minutes and 30 seconds to build and was held for 12 seconds. It was completed on the fifth attempt and captured on HD video by seven videographers/photographers.

The formation was: 290 feet (88 meters) tall

175 feet (53 meters) wide (The size of a football field)

The formation weighed: 20,388 pounds (9,230 kilos).

In comparison 6 Ford Mustangs weigh only 19,500 pounds.

A 747-400 jet is only 231 feet long.

The Wright brothers first flight was almost one third the distance as the
formation is tall.

Miami Air Traffic Control Center could monitor the formation on radar to keep other aircraft from coming into close proximity to the formation.
