Watch as 57 women break spectacular skydiving record

By WITW Staff on August 6, 2018

A group of women from 19 countries have come together in Ukraine to set a world record for formation skydiving. The 57 women jumped at precise times from three planes, before joining up and changing formations three times during a 90-second free fall.

The group beat the the previous record — for the highest number of people to get into formation, then change three times —  by one person.
