WATCH: 164 Skydivers Jump from 7 Planes in Epic, Hand-in-Hand Formation
Red Bull Air Force set an epic new world record when 164 skydivers jumped out of seven planes to complete a hand-in-hand group formation over Chicago.
Professional skydiver and Red Bull Air Force Manager Jon Devore was on “America’s Newsroom” to discuss the record-setting jump.
He said that the participants were all avid skydivers, explaining that time in the air and muscle memory are necessary for such a stunt.
“Building a formation’s like building a puzzle, and you don’t exactly know where all the pieces go yet,” he said.
Red Bull hopes to complete a 200-person jump one day.
