1. 61 skydivers came to Perris, California on October 17th so, they can shatter the skydiving record for the most wingsuit divers in formation while in freefall, set by 42 jumpers in June.
2. The dive was performed by leaping off three aircrafts that were flying at an altitude of 13,500-feet. Each then 'flew' to take his/her predetermined spot to create a perfect diamond formation. At about 5,500 feet, the divers scattered in different directions to ensure everyone had enough flying space, before opening their parachutes and landing gracefully on the ground below. It's important to scatter away after the formation so, you can use your parachutes.
3. The other record that was broken recently that was at the same place was when one in which divers hold on to each other. That title was claimed by 202 Skydive Perris members who made the leap at the same location on September 29th.
Critical Thinking Challenge: If I were one of the skydivers my concern was scattering out formation because if I don't use my parachute so I won't get severely injured.
