An incredible capture of 81 skydivers in a ‘canopy formation’. The dive occurred on November 25th, 2006 and was planned by a group called CF World Record 2005. Jumpers dropped in from an altitude of 24,000 feet, descending at an incredible 1,000 feet per minute. It’s an incredible feat that requires considerable determination and teamwork!
